Nearby Lightning Captured By Police Car


There are two things that can be learned from this video:
  1. A car is relatively safe in a lightning strike. If you are at your child's soccer game, your car is a good place to be until the storm blows over.
  2. Lightning can occur well away from the center of a storm.
We are headed toward peak lightning season. Please keep these in mind.


NOTE: I mistakenly thought the lightning hit the hood of the car. Thanks to James for pointing out my error. However, #1 and #2 are still valid.
