Is he taping a TV screen? Seems like it in the first video and that could cause so anomalies IMO
Strange tho... Especially in the second video where people other then him should be able to see what is going on and have no reaction...
This is the aftermath of a pretty brutal thunderstorm in Fort Worth Texas on May 10, 2011. It was taken from my balcony on the 34th floor of a building in Fort Worth. Though I thought we were at war or was terrorism, it was a massive series of downed 12,470 volt power lines. As I took it with my 70-200 2.8L IS lens, it is farther away than it looks. (it is 5 miles away) That is why there are not explosion sounds. This was a very well documented event. I was on my balcony to take lightning pictures (Yes, not smart) and this started happening in front of me. I turned my camera (Canon 5d MkII) to video mode and let it roll.
Brian Luenser witnessed something Tuesday night he had never seen before: blue, purple, orange and red fireballs lighting up the Fort Worth, Texas sky.
“I was really scared,” Luenser, an amateur photographer with a passion for taking pictures of lightning, told The Huffington Post. “The whole sky was lighting up. I didn't know if it was nuclear explosions or what.”
But he wasn’t too scared to shoot a video of the spectacle from the balcony of his 34th-floor condominium.
The explosions were the result of lightning striking "feeders," the lines that transmit electricity to neighborhoods, according to Jeamy Molina, a spokesperson for Oncor, the electrical company that serves the area.
The storm left about 4,000 people without power, and Luenser said that the explosions lasted for about 25 minutes. Molina said that power has been restored to those who lost it on Tuesday night.
Matt Mosier, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that there were more than 120 lightning strikes from 9:00 to 10:00 p.m. Luenser said that he captured the video between 9:30 and 10 p.m.
FORT WORTH -- Fire and police dispatchers were busy Tuesday night answering calls about "fireballs" in the sky and on the ground in east Fort Worth.
Several transformers were struck by lightning in east Fort Worth Tuesday night, Oncor spokeswoman Jeamy Molina said.
Repair crews worked through overnight Wednesday through the afternoon after the lightning strikes "destroyed" some of the transformers, Molina said.

Those are the similar Zapping light which i had seen during or rather before the black out here in Toronto occurred. For thing is recent those arent lighting strikes.
