Empire State Building Struck By Lightning Three Times [Videos]
I enjoy a good thunderstorm. I like to watch the lightning as everything gets really bright for that one quick second. That is, as long as it didn't do any damage or injure someone. Of course watching from a safe place. On Tuesday night, a major thunderstorm raged through New York City. The rain came pouring down and the thunder slammed loudly throughout the night. That is a downfall of the overnight storms-being woken up by thunder. Our Beagle hates them. When we have a storm, she shakes and she can't get close enough to you.
A lot of dogs were hiding under beds, children were scared, and adults were pretending not to be. The storm was so crazy that New York's most famous landmark, The Empire State Building, was struck by lightning at least three times -- and even cooler than that, it was caught on video!
Watch it happen, along with nine more lightning-strike videos of famous buildings after the jump. Not the same as watching from your home, but a very safe way to watch.
Do you like watching the storms, or would you rather hide?
