Ibn Abbas (ra) made this supplication when he heard a cloud burst:

“Glory be to him whose hymn you sing.” He also said that the thunderclap was on angel who disbursed the clouds through his loud shriek. It is like the shepherds who herd their sheep by calling out in a loud voice.

حَدَّثَنَا بِشْرٌ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا مُوسَى بْنُ عَبْدِ الْعَزِيزِ قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنِي الْحَكَمُ قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنِي عِكْرِمَةُ، أَنَّ ابْنَ عَبَّاسٍ كَانَ إِذَا سَمِعَ صَوْتَ الرَّعْدِ قَالَ‏:‏ سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي سَبَّحْتَ لَهُ، قَالَ‏:‏ إِنَّ الرَّعْدَ مَلَكٌ يَنْعِقُ بِالْغَيْثِ، كَمَا يَنْعِقُ الرَّاعِي بِغَنَمِهِ‏.‏
