Lightning struck a single lantern 12 times [WIDEO]
As you can see in the short video, a series of lightning discharges occurred within several seconds. Lightning strikes the same place 12 times in a row – a nearby street lamp.
The phenomenon was amazing and terrifying at the same time. The film’s author hid himself behind a wall during the recording of this event. The videos available on social media spread across the network very quickly.
This is another recording that deals with the claim that lightning strikes only one spot. In fact, there are many potential effects, especially against isolated objects or high altitudes. This is due, among other things, to the fact that the charges in the storm cloud are not discharged by a single lightning bolt. The remaining energy can trigger more secondary lightning strikes at the exact same points.
It is worth emphasizing that a thunderstorm can be very dangerous. Mid August in Orchard Beach, New York Six people were hospitalized after being struck by lightning during a storm. Among the injured were three children.
