Storms on Thursday and last Saturday brought crashes of thunder and bolts of lightning across Western Washington.
The frequent, violent lightning from Saturday’s storm caused a Husky football game to be delayed and forced the Washington State Fair in Puyallup to shut down early for safety concerns.
The National Weather Service said 2,200 lightning strikes were recorded across Western Washington Saturday night.
On Thursday, another storm rolled across the central and southern Puget Sound areas before moving into the Cascades and foothills, bringing lightning, gusty winds and brief downpours.
The National Weather Service said Thursday’s lightning strike count, starting about 4 p.m. along the coast until 10 p.m., was about 100, with about 50 of those in Grays Harbor County.
