Blessing on Lightning and Thunder

Hello me and a colleague had a dispute in opinions on the matter of making blessings upon seeing lightning and hearing thunder. Is one to say the blessing only once every 30 days or could it even be said daily in areas prone to storms. Thanks rabbi

Answer:

This blessing may be made once a day for the same storm, and even more than once in one day if the storm passes and a new storm arrives.
