Video: Electric Fireball Travels Down Power Lines in Quebec

By on November 3, 2013 // Science // 0 Comments

I don’t have much to say about the above video, except watch it.

In the video (warning: language), a ball of lightning makes its way down a power line in Lachine, Montreal, coming within feet of nearby homes. The shocking event occurred during a windstorm, when it’s believed lightning may have struck the power cables. A few hundred thousand people lost power.

I mean, I think it was caused by the windstorm. That, or somebody just traveled back to good old 1985.
