It's interesting to put the two sites side by side, not quite the same. Here's another in Peterborough click here

Well I'm now hooked on lightning maps, Graham ®.

That link I gave comes from Upminster in Essex which is only a few miles from me, so its handy for me in east London and its pretty accurate, the storms depicted are right over the top of us at the moment.

If anyone is interested you can buy the PCI receiver cards and software to measure Sferics from here:
