    I know that it can be used as in "burst out laughing" but (no comma here) can we use "burst out" (space after closing quotation marks) for weather events? smth something like this For example, "Thunders Thunder burst out".
    Welcome to the forum.

    Please see my corrections above.

    No, we don't say "Thunder burst out". The phrase "to burst out laughing" is a set phrase - it gives the idea that the laughter exploded from the person.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
