Watch the lightning change from a pinkish glow to bluish - this happened twice that night - any explanations? This lightning show represents part of the most incredible and most frequent lightning sparked show I have ever witnessed filmed overhead - straight up. It was as if the clouds were talking to each other - lightning from one thunder head to another! I recall we were simply too tired to go on filming this electrified mesoconvective system and headed back to the hotel after 1:30am!
This lightning caught us by surprise and and startled all people around us and left an image in my retina minutes afterwards! It was a tornado warned storm with base ball sized hail approaching a western Texas township. What a night!
These huge hailstones destroyed the body work on the car and smashed the windshield. Such 4 to 5 inch hailstones have been known to injure or even kill animals and even humans. Never venture out in such conditions. In this case other vehicles also suffered the same fate including this Mercedes Benz that passed by.
This was scary! The winds were so violent and the hail pounded the vehicle horizontally. I could not see the road - debris was all over the road and some hitting the vehicle. I navigate around giant tree roots!
Massive hailstones began pounding my vehicle and we watched helplessly moments later as one made a direct impact on the windshield smashing it and others followed. I could feel the whole car vibrating from each pounding. This event occurred north east of Singleton NSW Australia
Scary incredible explosion as roofing debris is wrapped around a tornado and thrown into a substation causing a spectacular explosion. Watch the debris and small trees floating in the air pass my vehicle! This tornado touched down in north eastern NSW near the township of Dunoon near Lismore and destroyed a few buildings including the local church.
Incredible lightning display occurred last night here in western Sydney with some awesome cloud to ground lightning and base rotation.
Massive lightning bolt - must see lightning bolt at the end of the clip. The supercell storm is nearing us and the lightning bolts decent from the vault or shelf region.
The passenger of this vehicle becomes hysterical as deafening giant hailstones driven by violent winds smashes windshield.
These giant hailstones fell from a massive storm (supercell) that produced hailstones that may have broken the Australian record for hailstone diameter. The hailstones produced holes in the roof of this house.
