Woman Filming Rainstorm Nearly Gets Struck By Lightning (Video)

| by Emily Smith

A 10-second video uploaded earlier this month shows a woman filming a rainstorm, when lightning suddenly strikes a few feet away.

“I just happened to be Snapchatting at the moment when lightning struck a few feet in front of me and I caught it on video,” Misty Jordan wrote in the video description. “It took me a minute to realize I was still alive.”

The flash at the 5-second mark is so shocking that Jordan stumbles backward.

“Would love to see this in slow-mo,” one YouTube commenter wrote.

The video was posted to YouTube on October 6th and has accumulated almost 70,000 views. The filming location was not disclosed.
