    • Heavy rains, Lightning Flashes, Thunder Roars, And Hail falls during a thunder storm.
    • When rising air, water vapor condenses into water droplets or ice crystals.

  • 4. Thunderstorm Damage
    • Thunderstorms can stall over a region, causing rain to fall heavily for a period of time.
    • Strong winds can cause damage.
    • Hail from a thunderstorm can dent cars and aluminum siding on houses.
