My sister lives in Waterlooville. Just thought I'd mention it.

I hope your sister is not frightened of lightning! More on the way locally, according to the chart.

She's 78, seen lots of storms.

I'm very near the Coast - in fact, if I were any closer my feet would be wet now!

Storm left Fareham some time ago heading your way! Luckily no damage as I was out!

  Technotiger 17:00 25 Mar 10

It passed overhead between 4 and 4.30, sun is shining again now!
