Right in the middle of [a flash], a very brief bluish-purple glow around the plane might be perceptible.

It's been known for years that hurricanes are gamma and x-ray producers.
It is unsurprising that smaller thunderstorms produce them as well.

But according to Dwyer's calculations, they might receive in an instant the maximum safe lifetime dose of ionizing radiation - the kind that wreaks the most havoc on the human body. "
