    On average, lightning strikes kill about 100 people in the U.S. each year, which beats out pretty much every natural disaster except for floods. Studies indicate that lightning deaths are underreported by 20 to 30%. But the toll has dropped from its 1940 level of 400 people a year due to the fact that people have moved to more urban living environments.
