'That Was F***ing Scary': Onlookers Shocked by Sudden Lightning Burst in Perth

A Perth resident captured the moment a lightning bolt tore across the sky above Scarborough, Western Australia, on February 28.

Tobias Dare recorded the footage while visiting a friend. The video shows dark clouds blanketing the sky before thunder and lightning strikes.

He told Storyful that he heard a loud blast and “ran outside shaking with excitement.” In the video, Dare can be heard laughing before he says, “That was f***ing scary.”
