Meteorite can you do me a favor check out that strike about an hour ago, you know my location. It did not hit the house but was not far off, in the garden I think I have lost most of the electrical items in the house again. Only have my phone (which works in the village). I will check the cctv when I get the pc back up i might have a good clise up.

Hopefully one of the sites recorded it, I am just going back home now (just ordered a new router) and will see if I can find where it hit My boy was in the garden at the time, says he felt it in his chest and now believes in God! I checked the cctv and although the pc was OK all the cameras blew at the same time, instantiously, the only footage I have is of large hail just before the strike.

Turned up on Meteologix site.

Some magnet for strikes down there, the lift off the mountains must play it's part. Hope not too much damage and glad nobody got hurt.

Thanks a lot for looking that up. I have my mobile phone taped to a stick stuck out of the window and I am connecting to it from a tablet so I dont have much of a connection. The loss adjuster who came out after the previous strike said that my area has the most strikes in Ireland, not sure how true that is. Another theory from the wireless company is that there is a big copper deposit in the mountain. The strike last week was close, but this one was really close, even the new Samsung washing machine blew up, all the led lights in the house are gone as are all the CCTV cameras. When I get the CCTV back up I am going to install an all sky camera and put it on a separate battery system to try and capture the next strike on camera. The hail before hand was intense, that's all the cameras captured...

That's interesting SlowBlowin. I use to sail quite a bit and going around Brandon pt the compass would often swing about and was told of a known anomaly in that area. I often heard there was a theory why so many planes crashed on and near Mt Brandon during WW2 was because of possible deposits of metal ore that affected the compasses on the planes ? Don't know how true it is or if any research was ever done to look into it ,no doubt the cloudy conditions and being so far out in the peninsula had effect also in the days of fairly primitive instrumentation. OT but for anybody interested a link below of Wartime Aircraft Crashes in Ireland and page open is of Kerry.

For the record the rainfall radar for the time of the strike.

Interesting article on the BBC about cloud top temperatures.

Super-cold thunderstorm sets temperature record.

Saturday still showing potential for Convective weather under the passage of an upper trough and associated cold pool. Lapse rates should be half decent and with good sunny spells expected diurnal heating should aid convection. Models showing outbreak of heavy wintry showers with hail as the day progresses, peaking in the afternoon. Not a lot of shear available so if thunderstorms do break out will probably be pulse like and short lived. Will see.

Might be worth keeping an eye on this rail cam in NE Missouri over the next few hours. Some big storms just to its south that may move into this area later.
