No it isn't from the devil. I was never told what it was really, because I never experienced it until I was in my early teens. I am afraid of it, but it doesn't have anything to do with bad things. It's just a natural phenomena due to weather conditions. Stay inside though, you don't want to get struck by it.

Well its all what you believe. Some say god is making thunder because hes angry. I have also heard its because god is crying. Personally I don't believe its the devil. Although I am not a religious person. Ironically its storming right now. I am intrusted to hear why you think its the devil.

Thunderstorms result from the movement of air around the earth. When a large mass of warm air collides with a large mass of cold air, the warm air is pushed up rapidly. This creates powerful winds. Usually, the warm air holds moisture and when it goes high into the sky, it cools and the moisture condenses and falls as rain or snow. In the summer, it will be rain or hail. The air masses moving by each other create static electricity which builds up and eventually discharges as lighting. (much like your feet rubbing on carpet create static electricity and a little lighting bolt comes off your finger when you touch a doorknob.) The combination of wind and rain and hail and lighting is what we call a thunderstorm. When the wind spins fast enough, it creates tornadoes.
Satan does not have anything to do with it. Weather happens because the earth is not the same temperature in every spot all of the time.

You might find some folks in the midwest right now, especially Iowa, who would agree with that devil theory.  I doubt they would normally feel that way though.  But I do think I can understand why a thunderstorm might lead one to think thoughts like that.  The lightening, the crashing thunder, it's beautiful in many ways, yet it has a nightmarish quality too.  Here's what I think January19, I think you could probably do a decent job of writing a scary story during a storm, about a storm and the feelings you have.  Ever have an urge to write?  This could be your chance Kiddo!

I absolutely love thunderstorms and though I don't practice religion as often as I should be, I was raised to believe there is a god and a heaven but I elect to believe otherwise as far as the devil thing goes.
I believe thunderstorms have absolutely nothing  to do with the devil, it has to do with the atmosphere & mother nature :) I've heard so many tales about thunderstorms ex: The angels are bowling, god is crying... In the winter, are snowstorms controlled by the devil???....I don't think so.
I feel what it boils down to is what YOU truely believe.

The devil is an idea invented by religious nuts to control other people and can't possibly control anything.     Here's a blurb from the U.S.  weather service (NOAA)     How does a thunderstorm form?  Three basic ingredients are required for a thunderstorm to form: Moisture, rising unstable air (air that keeps rising when given a nudge), and a lifting mechanism to provide the "nudge."  The sun heats the surface of the earth, which warms the air above it. If this warm surface air is forced to rise -- hills or mountains, or areas where warm/cold or wet/dry air bump together can cause rising motion -- it will continue to rise as long as it weighs less and stays warmer than the air around it. As the air rises, it transfers heat from the surface of the earth to the upper levels of the atmosphere (the process of convection). The water vapor it contains begins to cool, releasing the heat, and it condenses into a cloud. The cloud eventually grows upward into areas where the temperature is below freezing. Some of the water vapor turns to ice and some of it turns into water droplets. Both have electrical charges. Ice particles usually have positive charges, and rain droplets usually have negative charges. When the charges build up enough, they are discharged in a bolt of lightning, which causes the sound waves we hear as thunder.     read more at this site :
