Storms brought lightning, thunder, and heavy rainfall to eastern Illinois on Monday, July 20.
Footage recorded by Scott Denison shows damage that was caused to trees by the stormy conditions outside his home in Thomasboro before he gets a fright from a nearby thunderbolt.
“I don’t know what the f*** that hit!” he can be heard saying in the video while filming the storm.
Writing on Facebook, Denison said, “The lightning strike that sent me running was probably one block away.”
