    Man directly struck by lightning on Clearwater Beach dies


    Don't **** around with thunderstorms. I hate to be that guy but "if thunder roars, go indoors."

    It's unknown to me if this lightning strike was the first strike of that day/that particular storm cell. I can check when I go to campus and get behind my work machine tomorrow.

    This incident might be the spark (sorry) I needed to make a decision on what to do for my master's research: improving the predictability and lead time of first strike cloud to ground lightning.

    ...and Maximus said to Commodus, "the time for honoring yourself will soon come to an end."

    Hate crime? Of course not. That's a one way street.

    Lightning isn't any joke! I had a real close call about a month ago while replacing the ac compressor in my mustang out in the driveway. The crazy thing about it was the fact that the clouds weren't that dark, sun poking thru a few of them, but it was starting to lightly rain...then it struck, quite literally a bolt out of the blue, hit my next door neighbors tree. I nearly shat myself when that ****er struck! The strike blew up most of the electronic shit in his house and it knocked out the low voltage block in our AC unit. There was no prior lightning or thunder either.

    FWIW it split the ****ing tree in two as well.

    Driver assaulted Good Samaritans after rollover on Hwy. 403: police

    A driver involved in a single-vehicle rollover on Highway 403 on Friday morning is in custody after he assaulted several Good Samaritans who came to his aid, police say.

    The initial collision involving the white hatchback occurred just before 3 a.m. in the westbound express lanes of Highway 403 approaching Eglinton Avenue in Mississauga.

    Sources tell CP24 that the driver of the hatchback attempted to steal a vehicle belonging to a Good Samaritan who had stopped to provide assistance after the collision. Police say that he also assaulted the occupants of a number of other vehicles.

    Police eventually arrived on scene and attempted to take the man into custody but they needed to use a conducted energy device in order to gain control of him, the sources say.

    Police say that a total of three people were taken to hospital with minor injuries as a result of the incident.

    The highway remained closed for several hours as police waited to whether the Special Investigations Unit would invoke its mandate. It then reopened just after 7:30 a.m.

    Paralyzed man struck by lightning in Pompano Beach
    Williams' family says he was sitting in his wheelchair under a tree near his home on Sunday when the storm came. They believe he was reading his Bible App on his phone when he was struck.

    A neighbor told Williams' mother that she heard an explosion and looked out her window. When she did, she saw his entire wheelchair on fire.


    Must of been on meth while in the womb.
