Dramatic Lightning Zaps Across Alabama Sky During Sunset

Bolts of lightning flashed across an orange sky on July 9, as stormy weather moved in while the sun was setting over central Alabama.

This footage, recorded by Jeffrey Fuller, shows multiple bolts of lightning reaching over Northport, Alabama, during a spectacular sunset.

Fuller told Storyful, “I’ve seen some great strikes before, but nothing like that one. And to see it with a sunset and the reflection off the lake was simply unparalleled.”
