What will happen to SSD storage if there's a lighting strike near the location?
SSD works electrically, and I wonder what would happen if there's a lighting strike around the location.

All normal computer parts are based on electronics including both SSD and conventional Hard drives - as well as the motherboard, CPU, RAM etc. etc..
The damage done by a close lighting strike depends on the intensity of voltage surges and on cables connected to the computer that can cause an internal voltage gradient.
Quite often, a machine damaged by lighting will only lose it's power supply - though it is possible in a near-direct strike on house power cables that the PSU could flashover internally and other parts be damaged.
