Lightning Bolts Bombard Albuquerque

It seems Albuquerque got hit pretty hard from lightning strikes...


They say lighting doesn’t strike the same place twice, but these bolts have bombarded the same area over eleven hair-raising minutes. Each individual lightning bolt pounds the ground with an average power of one billion volts, so the force of dozens of bolts a second over more than ten minutes can barely be imaged. Tour guide, Roch Hart, 52, took these incredible shots from his roof in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, just two miles away from the lightning strikes. “After a day of tours I noticed this storm develop,” said Roch.


Really looks intense, just like in that movie War of the Worlds. Click link for photos and details. Toward the bottom of the page they have a slideshow of much bigger pictures.

AWESOME!!! What a great light show. The pictures are fantastic. I love lightning, as long as rain accompanies it. Out here on the prairie, lightning strikes without rain means grass fires.

WOW! That is so cool! I love thunderstorms, lightening storms and the like. I wish I could have seen it. A family member of mine was just down in Albuquerque about a week ago, they just missed it!
