During a typical large lighting storm, strikes occur several times per
second. This results in a moderate duty cycle -- it's not that low.
During any given strike, the RF energy produced is tremendous. It is
enough to drown out a nearby 100kW AM radio station. It may not be
constant, but for organisms living in thunderstorm-prone areas, there is
definitely significant cumulative exposure.
