Thunderstorms coming off the Atlantic Ocean lit up the skies of South Florida on Thursday morning, bringing downpours and multiple lightning strikes.
Chopper 5 was high above Lake Worth at 6:45 p.m. when a large strike occurred off in the distance toward Boynton Beach and Delray Beach. (Watch the video below)
Thankfully Johann Hoffend and Chopper 5 were at a safe distance from the storm when the strike occurred.
Drivers should watch out for brief downpours associated with these storms during the morning commute.
