Accuracy of detections - a possible check
« on: September 23, 2014, 09:59:30 AM »
Being in the UK, I'm not eligible for a kit and therefore to actively particpate - yet.
But, last Friday (19th Sept 2014) we had quite a localized storm in Southend Essex.  Although I haven't got the times and may not be able to get them, I do know that a 15 story building got hit at least once, and reportedly go thit four times.
Would anyone with the facility to check detected hits, the building has the post code SS99 1AA and sits on the roundabout next to Victoria Station.

Be interesting to see what Blitzortung detected for that night.

There was definitely lightning activity in that area on 19 September.



See attached for what I was able to find from a localized search. (or should I say localised?  :grin:)

Hi Greg,

The 2nd jpg (attachment) seems to show the later part of the evening but the building in question is on the junction of the yellow road heading South joining the white road running east/west, just below the '-' after the word Southend.

I was watching the strikes on the live map for part of the evening and the strikes then were west of Southend:-
