Yesterday, there was a severe storm here.As far as I know,lightning and thunder can be used as verbs so I wonder if I can say it is thundering and lightninging here.

Thank you.

    Thunder is a verb, so you can say thundering. Lightning, however, is not.

    "Thunder and lightning" is the normal word order in English.
