Lightning illuminated the sky over Haltom City, Texas, as severe thunderstorms were forecast for the Dallas-Fort Worth region on May 7.
This video was recorded by Mike Hathaway, a self-proclaimed “weather nut.” Hathaway told Storyful there have been a few rounds of storms in north Texas since last week.
“When it looked like the bulk of the storm was going to pass us in Haltom City (just north of Ft Worth) I went into the kitchen to do dishes and saw this spectacular show outside the kitchen window,” Hathaway said. “Major springtime storms are not uncommon here,” he said, but “that amount of lightning was pretty different.”
The National Weather Service warned of severe storms, heavy winds, and large hail across areas of north Texas on the same date. Credit: Mike Hathaway via Storyful
