This is a very unusual video. It shows a massive lightning strike which shattered a tree causing very large wood splinters to blast across a car park over perhaps a hundred yards or more. We see a young women diving back into her room. We then see a domestic cat running towards the lightning strike to go under a car which is parked quite near to the shattered tree. It’s just interesting for the power of the strike and the way the cat is completely panicked by the noise. I feel sorry for the cat but I am sure that he was okay. I am not sure why he ran towards the strike. It may be due to panic and because he had a car to go under.
WATCH: "This not only is video of the day, it could be video of the week, it could be video of the year." ⚡
We'll be speaking with the woman in this unbelievable clip TONIGHT at 6:20 ET. Hopefully we get an update on the cat! pic.twitter.com/Deyn9qMRLk
