Delayed notifications and lag time

Seems to be at least a 10 second delay or lag time in notification when tested in real-time lightning conditions

Developer Response ,

The notifications are not instantaneous because all of the data comes from lightning detection networks where the data must be processed to calculate where the lightning strike occurred, the appropriate users to notify must be calculated and then the notification must be sent to Apple (who then forward it to your device). The delay should be relatively small however.
