Have you already watched the 2012 movie “Struck by Lightning”? If so, then you probably have realized that anyone of us can possibly meet an electrifying end. For some witnesses, sudden lightning streaks can be an amazing scenery but for those who are afraid of it, this could be a traumatizing experience.
According to The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), lightning usually happens during a storm. It occurs when “droplets and crystals bump together and move apart in the air. This rubbing makes static electrical charges in the clouds.”
If you are fond of surfing the net, then the virtual world can offer you a whole lot of mesmerizing photos of phenomenal lightning bolts captured and recorded by netizens around the world.
Take for example this lightning bolt that was captured at the Daytona Beach in Florida, United States. As seen in the video that was uploaded by an unnamed netizen, a lightning bolt suddenly struck the waters of the area. Luckily, no one was hurt during its occurrence.
If you are not familiar with the area, Daytona Beach is dubbed as the “The World’s Most Famous Beach”. However, it is also remarkable for its terrifying lightning storms.
Upon uploading the video clip, it immediately went viral and gave the beachgoers a bit of a fright.
Some netizens took to Imgur, an online image sharing app, to express their comments and concerns on the alarming footage.
