There are so many micro-wave antennas on hill tops surrounding Avissawella. The incidence of lightening strikes on the surrounding human settlements and civilian deaths in the surrounding areas is reported frequently.
Various factors have been attributed to the increased incidents of lightning strikes. One of the factors which has been cited is increased air pollution.
The second factor which has been cited is the installation of lightening ARRESTERS which actively repel lightening strikes on the antennae on the hills, protecting valuable electronic equipment. This would deflect the normal strike of lightening on the hills where these antennae are installed. The lightening charge would find an alternate path to the surrounding human settlements.
The older type of lightening CONDUCTORS would safeguard the settlements.
Correct me if I am wrong. Is there any answer to this problem?
