In August 2016, there was a lightning strike that killed over 300 reindeer in Norway. A spokesman for the organization The Norwegian Nature Inspectorate or the NNI, told the Norwegian News Agency that 323 reindeer were found dead in an area near Hardangervidda, which is in the southern part of the country. The Norwegian Environment Agency says that 70 of the reindeer were calves. Officials say that it most likely happened during a heavy thunderstorm, which could’ve been one of the deadliest strikes in history.
