So there's a heavy thunderstorm going on right now, and just now a bolt of lightning flashed.

There was loud thunder, but then something weird happened:

There was a quieter, droning sound that went on for about 20 seconds after the thunderclap, and sounded like sheet metal waving.

EDIT: no, actually, now that I think about it, it sounded more like steel wire than sheet metal.

Does anyone have any idea what that was, or if that phenomenon has a name?

Did it sound like one of the walker things in war of the worlds ? If so, run.

Happens fairly often. I always just looked at it as thunder; just a different aspect of it. Kind of feels like a growl if I'm thinking of the same thing you're talking about.
#14
I can imagine the sound, I've heard it before... where was that again? Oh yeah!

it sounded like after the initial discharge of the lightning, there was still a load of electricity jumping around in the cloud.

Though I don't think it's the same thing that you mean, you probably mean the normal "aftergrowl" that comes after a loud thunderstrike, but this sound was really different, and the first time I've ever heard it.

Yeah, sounds like we're talking about different things. Guess I don't know what you're talking about bud. Don't think I've ever heard any other kind of noises from a storm.

I think I might have heard it before, once or twice. No idea what it was, though

Probably the air was still expanding but just not as violent as it normally is.

huh, it WAS a pretty loud lightning clap, and echoes coming from different sources might have phased into the sound i heard...

perhaps you're right.

A butterfly on the other side of the world flapped its wings?

I honestly don't know, my guess would be the soundwaves bounced off a weird surface or travelled through a load of nonuniform substances (Or whatever they're called) and the frequency got slightly modified or something

It's actually created by the thunder echoing between different cloud layers. Kind of like through a pipe. There is a meteorological term for it but I don't recall what it is at the moment.

From the internet.

First off, a lightning bolt is not usually a straight line. On average, a lightning bolt is over four miles long, branching out in many different directions through the sky and atmosphere. This causes a multitude of compression waves that all reach our ears at different times.

Secondly, the compression waves of a thunder clap will bounce off the clouds, the ground, and other objects such as mountains, or water, much like your voice echoes in a canyon or large auditorium. These compression wave echoes will grow louder and softer, often echoing and repeating. This echoing constitutes the rumbles of thunder that we hear.

Maybe it was some asian couple humping in the clouds, who wouldn't keep their sexual noises down?
