We had several strong bands come through Miami over the last 36 hours. Although there were strong winds and heavy rain, I never heard any thunder. We had 100,000+ without power and lots of trees down, still no lightening that I saw.
In fact with comments made earlier today about how the weather wasn't any different than the average afternoon thunderstorm and travelers should have no problems. I didn't want to get into that negative discussion, but that is totally NOT the case. The weather we have been seeing is NOTHING like the regular thunderstorms we get. The winds are much higher and more variable, the rain more intense, and NO lightening. This is NOT normal weather as some stated earlier.
