That requires triggers to do the job, but alright.

    • Sound - Play LightningBolt1.wav
First you have to import a sound from the library to your map. To do this go to Sound Editor, find LightningBolt1.wav (Doodads -> Cinematic -> Lightningbolt of you can use Ctrl + F to open search window), import it to your map. In it's settings untick the "Positioned sound" button (that makes sound be heard anywhere on the map).

But I think post above does it better.

Use cinematic filters - white mask - 100% white 70% transparant for a lightning effect. Use this effect a few seconds before the sound for realistic lightning
