Thunderstorms moved across Western Washington causing the Husky football game to be delayed and even forcing the Washington State Fair to shut down early.
The NWS said 2,200 lightning strikes were recorded across the Puget Sound area Saturday night.
Taking look back at last night between 6 pm and 11 pm in Western Washington estimated number of cloud to ground lightning strikes...2200. That works out to an estimated 440 an hour and 7 to 8 a minute. #wawx— NWS Seattle (@NWSSeattle) September 8, 2019
