Hurricane Harvey was a prodigious lightning producer when it hit Houston/SE Texas. But I thought hurricanes don't have much lightning (with the eyewall being the only exception), due to tropical cyclones featuring mostly horizontal shear that inhibits the in-cloud charge separation needed for lightning strikes.
