Find out how total lightning data can benefit your organization
Did you know that the lightning strikes we see during storms represent only a small fraction of the total lightning strikes that occur in the atmosphere?
In-cloud lightning strikes account for the majority of lightning activity and usually serve as an early indicator of extreme weather – from heavy rain and hail to dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning strikes and tornadoes.
Our powerful sensing technology precisely captures in-cloud and cloud-to-ground lightning in real-time with high detection efficiencies for more reliable forecasting and timely alerts. By combining the Lightning Sensor with our advanced analytics and visualization capabilities you can monitor detailed lightning intelligence as it happens to inform better decisions and keep people safe.
Proprietary lightning sensor technology
Deadly weather events often occur within 5 to 30 minutes of in-cloud flash initiation. The proprietary sensor technology used by our Total Lightning Network significantly improves severe weather warning times by up to 30 minutes or more.Total Lightning Network

50% faster thunderstorm alerts
A Dangerous Thunderstorm Alert (DTA) is issued when the Total Lightning Network detects a high frequency of lightning, indicating an increased potential for severe weather.Learn more
Safety in action on college campuses
Our main dispatcher uses Earth Networks data to ensure that the High Point University campus safe - our most common concern is lightning. When lightning is detected within 8 miles, we automatically lock down our campus pools and clear out athletic fields. Earth Network tends to be more reliable in providing early notification versus local news channels.— Gus Porter , High Point University, NC
It has worked very well for OSU and we are extremely pleased.— Ron Hill, OSU Emergency Management
