This is the sound of close and frequent hits of lightning during the late-night of May 31, 1985 in SE New York State (Islip, Long Island). This was the same weather system that caused the famous "Tri-State Tornado Outbreak" earlier that same day. As the line of severe thunderstorms finally passed through my area, I was there to record this audio of the electrically-active thunderstorms. Note that despite the low audio fidelity, you can still hear the "crackling" sound of some of the louder lightning hits.

The sound requires at least a 56k connection and the latest REAL Media Player for best results. Realplayer can be found at WWW.REAL.COM and can be downloaded free of charge. This player is required to play this sound clip in streaming format. Right-click on the REAL player control for the options.
