Can the cleric level 7 spell fire storm be used against creatures/humanoids that are flying say 50' off the ground or can it only be used against creatures on the ground?

It's a "100-foot cube", meaning that it can reach up to 100' without leaving the ground. What's more, it's "centered on a point within range" (100' of the caster), allowing a creature up to 150' directly above the caster to be affected. If the caster is also flying, the effective maximum altitude is unlimited.

    \$\begingroup\$ @DaleM: Who's ignoring Pythagoras? "Directly" above the caster needs no weird triangular solutions: just add half the cube size to the full range and there you go. (If you're trying to attack someone 80' away horizontally and ... 20' up or something, then you'd have to do the full trigonometric calculation.) \$\endgroup\$ – user17995 Oct 6 '15 at 2:30
