A couple of days ago lightning struck the Miami airport control tower.  At 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, the lightning strike affected radio frequencies and telephone signals. As a result, dozens of flights were cancelled, delayed or diverted. Fortunately, the radar remained operational.

There were a significant number of complaints from passengers, both those waiting for their flight and those who were simply waiting for their bags to leave. It was not until 22:00 that the airport was able to return to normal.

Miami International Airport (MIA) is one of the most important airports in the United States, both for its international importance as a connection to Latin America, and for its domestic connections as the preferred destination for Americans.

This is just one of the incidents caused by the storms in Miami during these days. More than 14,000 power outages have been recorded in Miami-Dade County alone.
