Lightning strikes as ominous shelf cloud looms over Ontario, Canada

A lightning bolt struck as a storm chaser was filming an ominous-looking shelf cloud looming over Waterloo, Canada. As the chaser pans across a field, a fork of lightning strikes followed by a loud clap of thunder. The filmer told Newsflare: "The lightning strike was 100 metres away. The storm also merged with another storm producing an even longer line and with 70kmh+ winds. This uprooted trees in waterloo and caused power outages." This footage was filmed on June 29.
