It's just a folklore that lightning would never strike the same place twice. Last year, on June 30, 2014, three skyscrapers from Chicago were struck by lightning 22 times - 10 strikes to the Sears (Willis) Tower, 8 to the Trump Tower, and 4 to the John Hancock Tower. So be assured that lightning can surely strike any location more than once, and probably at the same spot over and over again, given enough time. It may take as little as few seconds in a thunderstorm, or as long as millions of years - but lightning will eventually strike the same place twice. Be Safe out there!

It's just a folklore that lightning would never strike the same place twice. Last year, on June 30, 2014, three skyscrapers from Chicago were struck by lightning 17 times - 10 strikes to the Sears (Willis) Tower, 8 to the Trump Tower, and 4 to the John Hancock Center. So be assured that lightning can surely strike any location more than once, and probably at the same spot over and over again, given enough time. It may take as little as few seconds in a thunderstorm, or as long as millions of years - but lightning will eventually strike the same place twice.

It's only a myth that "Lightning never strikes the same place twice". Very recently , on June 30, 2014, three high-rising skyscrapers from Chicago were struck by Lightning 22 times - 10 strikes to the Sears (a.k.a. Willis) Tower, 8 to the Trump Tower, and 4 to the John Hancock Center. Scientifically speaking, there is a good probability that Lightning can strike any location more than once, given enough time, and at the same spot over and over again. It may take as little a few seconds in a single thunderstorm, or as long as millions of years - but Lightning will eventually strike twice, at least. And it's the truth that is stranger than the fiction.
