Dramatic Lightning Strike Captured as Thunderstorm Moves Across Maryland

A Maryland motorist captured a dramatic lightning strike on her drive home from work as thunderstorms moved across the Baltimore area on September 3.

Jessica Trautwein posted video footage showing the lightning bolt next to Interstate 95 near the White Marsh Boulevard overpass.

The National Weather Service issued tornado and thunderstorm warnings for the Baltimore area and confirmed one tornado touched down just south of Annapolis, approximately 40 miles away from the lightning strike, during the storm. Credit: Jessica Trautwein via Storyful
