Lightning Strike

We recently had a pretty awesome thunder storm here in Port Elizabeth. This is something that does not occur that often in this area. This was a lucky shot I took after taking multiple shots in the one direction for over an hour.
Did You Know?
1. If you have wet clothes on, lightning will do you less harm
2. Lightning hits the Empire State Building (NY, USA) about 23 times a year
3. About 71% of all people struck by lightning survive. The fatal cases are usually the result of cardiac arrest. However, those who survive often suffer from serious health and psychological problems like loss of memory or sensitivity, insomnia, impaired hearing, or constant pain.
4. The chance to be killed by lightning is 1 in 2,000.000.
