The tables above show the time of day people have been struck by lightning in Colorado since 1980. Table 1 shows the time (in hour increments)  in which people were injured/killed by lightning. Time is in Mountain Standard Time. Some of the data did not document the hour in which the person was hit, but only the general time of day (i.e, evening, morning, etc). This data is listed in Table 2.

In the tables above, if multiple people were affected by one flash, it is only counted ONCE in the tables above. As an example, in table 1, one flash affected 3 people at 3 am. Since multiple people were affected by one flash, it is only counted as one time.
