A really scary story from some trained stormchasers in Iowa who were trying to fim a possible tornado forming, and instead nearly got struck by lightning.
Sunday Evening Danny Murphy and his son Derek were filming a potentially tornadic storm that moved into Denison, Iowa area during the evening. Several beautiful structure shots are shown as well as lightning bolts at a distance….until one bolt hits so close that it appears a leader impacts Danny and knocks him back several feet into their vehicle. Danny is in the hospital as of this posting (9-2-14) recovering from his injuries in a Sioux City, Iowa hospital.
More from the local media, and the video is below.
