The big hybrid derecho/MCV/flash flood mega-storm hit the Appalachians this evening and got shredded to bits. For me, that left only the close-up tower lightning play. The system was collapsing fast, and even the lightning barely made it into the state before vanishing entirely. Not before hitting the WVAH tower a total of 9 times though, 4 of which I missed while driving up to the Coal Mountain site. Most of the flashes were single return strokes, only one did I manage to catch a still of one full stroke. The clip above shows the five hits I did manage to get.
