‘Time to Go Inside’: Storm Chaser Shaken by Nearby Lightning Strike in Texas

Storm chaser Marcus Diaz may think twice about how close he gets to the elements after a lightning strike hit the outskirts of the Texan town of Orla on March 13.

While filming a “developing tornado” in the area, Diaz told Storyful he was “almost struck by lightning from a bolt about 100 yards away”.

“Time to go inside,” an individual off-camera can be heard saying after the lighting strike, as seen in the video Diaz uploaded to YouTube.
