Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
How was these thunder and lightning different than normal?
וַיַּ֤עַשׂ ה֙ כֵּ֔ן וַיָּבֹא֙ עָרֹ֣ב כָּבֵ֔ד בֵּ֥יתָה פַרְעֹ֖ה וּבֵ֣ית עֲבָדָ֑יו וּבְכָל־אֶ֧רֶץ מִצְרַ֛יִם תִּשָּׁחֵ֥ת הָאָ֖רֶץ מִפְּנֵ֥י הֶעָרֹֽב׃
And the LORD did so. Heavy swarms of insects invaded Pharaoh’s palace and the houses of his courtiers; throughout the country of Egypt the land was ruined because of the swarms of insects.
We are taught that thunder, was created to cleanse wicked hearts.
The thunder frightened the Egyptians the most. As soon as it ended, Pharaoh went back on his word.
Also, miraculously, the thunder and lightning occurred then at the exact same time, and not the way it usually does, with a delay of a few seconds.
(Berachot 59a, Rabenu Bachya, Malbim)
