Many lightning bolts in Venezuela - level 2
This news is from Venezuela. There is an area there which people entered into the Guinness Book of World Records. Around 250 lightning bolts happen there per one square kilometre per year.
The lightning bolts originate from a mass of storm clouds which are over 5 kilometres high. The phenomenon is the strongest during the rainy season.
A scientist who grew up in the region loves it very much. He remembers it as something very beautiful. He proposed the phenomenon to be in the Guinness Book to attract more tourists.
Difficult words: lightning bolt (a powerful flash of light in the sky which is caused by electricity), phenomenon (something which happens in nature), propose (to say that you think that something should happen).
