If you live in Florida you know just how fierce and frequent lightning can be.

People living in Chicago recently experienced the power of Mother Nature.

A lighting strike hit a telephone pole and it exploded into flames.

Anja Englert was driving in the rain Sunday night when the bolt blasted the pole.

In the United States, lightning routinely kills more people each year than tornadoes or hurricanes, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
