Venezuela's Everlasting Lightning Storm

Almost 300 nights a year, a lightning storm rages in a small part of Venezuela. Known as Relampo del Catatumbo, the storm is located where the Catatumbo River flows into Lake Maracaibo. Warm air from the Caribbean meets the cold air from the mountains, creating the perfect conditions for lightning.
