These days due to the Philipines volcano eruption, there seems to be a lot of talk about lightening that happens in the volcano. And it seems like an interesting topic to discuss. I am wondering what are some of the chemical reaction that causes the lightening and also shockwaves in the ground during such lightening?

Any idea on how such chemical reactions are chained for this event?
