Lightning Flashes During 'Stunning' Sunset Thunderstorm in Southwest Arizona

A storm chaser recorded footage of lightning flashing from an isolated thunderstorm as the sun set in Tonopah, Arizona, on June 24.

Video recorded by Mike Olbinski shows a pastel sky during sunset, as a heavy cloud produces rain and lightning. The National Weather Service warned of storm developments around the area that day.

“The colors turned a lovely orange and pink, and the lightning show started, which made the entire thing just more stunning,” Olbinski told Storyful. Credit: Mike Olbinski via Storyful
