HIGHLANDS COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) — Viewers of News Channel 8 submitted a striking security camera video Sunday of a lightning bolt exploding the ground outside of a Sebring home over the weekend.
Denice Murphy said her husband Rod was outside turning off the sprinklers ahead of some forecasted rain Saturday morning when a lightning bolt struck mere yards away from him.
Their Ring security camera captured the striking moment on camera.
In the video, the bolt can be seen sending chunks of red-hot earth several feet into the air. Luckily, Rod did not appear to be injured.
News Channel 8 is working to find the extent of the damage.
