Un rayo posible origen del incendio del Parque Natural del Montsant

El Servei Meteorològic de Catalunya (SMC) ha determinado que el incendio de Cabacés se originó la tarde del miércoles debido a la caída de un rayo. Entre las 20.45 y las 21.30 horas se registraron varios impactos de rayos en los municipios de La Bisbal de Falset, Cabacés y Margalef ubicados en el Parque Natural del Montsant, provincia de Tarragona.

Los rayos son una de las causas de incendios forestales. En provincias como la de Teruel, más de la mitad de los incendios son causados por rayos, y un tercio de la superficie quemada de las Comunidades de Valencia, Castilla-La Mancha o Aragón lo fue a causa de este fenómeno natural. Los incendios ocurren mayoritariamente en las estaciones más secas coincidiendo con la temporada de tormentas.

El miercoles 27 de junio descargaron en toda la península más de 31.500 rayos, sumando los rayos nube-nube y nube tierra. Las tormentas afectaron principalmente al norte y este de España.

El Sistema de Localización de Rayos (INGESCO) reflejó en todo momento la evolución de los rayos en tiempo real, tal y como podemos visualizar en la imagen que adjuntamos
