Looking for historical lightning data

Unread post by CbFan »

Left field one this.
Does anyone have, or know where I can source lighting data for Northland 14-17th April this year please?
Can only find realtime.

In relation to a warranty claim...

Many thanks.

There may be references to strikes in local media on those dates.

No idea of they keep historical data, but Transpower operate (in conjunction with the MetService) a detailed Lightning detection system that they use to help with Grid Operations. You could reach out to the comms teams of both organisations and ask them kindly if they do!?
