Description: Three intense lightning bolts strike a television tower near St. Albans, West Virginia in a timespan of less than five minutes. Two cameras record the action from close range, with one set up to capture detailed extreme close-up shots of each strike. Fine detail of each strike is visible, including lightning channel drift, bead-out and return strokes. Glowing metal shards fall from the tower after each strike. Excellent proof that lightning does strike the same place twice!
