‘Fire Ball’ in Thunder Storm Video

In images, nature on October 28, 2012 at 16:40

Rita Krill, 53, of Naples, Fla., got a little more than she bargained for while shooting a severe thunderstorm in her backyard Oct. 5.

“It was about 100 feet from my yard,” Krill said. “I was out there videoing it. My puppy was out there. She usually doesn’t flinch too much at storms. She’s used to it. And then, boom, the lighting struck and you could obviously hear my reaction.”

Krill can’t believe she captured the lightning striking the up-lighting in her next door neighbor’s yard on camera, which blew out the light and caused large electrical sparks.

What she called a “fireball” in the video she uploaded to YouTube that night.

“What’s incredible is what are the chances of this happening just as I was panning that direction?” Krill asked. “My next door neighbor has up-lighting on the trees next door in her yard. It completely decapitated the lighting unit itself. It exploded. The tree wasn’t charred or burned. It just shaved it clean.”

Krill says Naples is the lightning capital of North America, but she’s still fascinated by the thunderstorms because she’s originally from California and not used to that kind of severe weather.
