The heavy toll in landslides and floods during this year’s rainy season in Nepal have overshadowed another frequent disaster: lightning.  

This week’s incessant rains left 12 more people killed and nine are still missing in landslides, taking the total this monsoon season to 350 — the deadliest in the past decade.
 
However, the high death toll in landslides have masked the second biggest cause of death: lightning. Nepal’s high terrain, frequent thunderstorms and densely populated mountains make it one of the most dangerous places to be during a thunderstorm.
