Potent Lightning Storm Captured on Camera in the Bay Area

It is incredible to think about how many amazing weather videos and pictures could be documented if  photographers were in the right place at the right time. During a severe lightning storm in the Bay Area, photographer Phil McGrew happened to be in a safe location and was able to capture eight lightning bolts simultaneously striking the Bay Bridge. This type of lightning storm is extremely unusual in the Bay Area and it is truly remarkable that it was captured on camera. In fact, severe lightning in the Bay Area is so rare that a shot like this may not be captured again in our lifetime.
