Electric storm - yes the lightning part (not the noise) will affect them.

It is in most books and covered on most courses, is it not?

None, although I have my eye on one ( Just don't tell Dusty ;) )
When we inspected, all it took was for a cold breeze to pass over and the noise level went up a notch. I seem to be very sensitive to their moods, no - one else noticed until i mentioned it.....but that's because they terrify me lol :p and I am looking out for the slightest change in temperament so I can run away
