Triple-Building Lightning Strike Captured In Chicago

July 10, 2014


Note: Slightly larger version HERE in case you want to experience the wrath of God in higher def.

This is a shot of lightning striking Chicago's three tallest buildings (the Willis Tower, Trump Tower and John Hancock Building) simultaneously on the evening of June 30th, 2014. The image was captured by videographer Craig Shimala, who had set up cameras on his roof to capture the incoming storm. When shown the image, the double rainbow guy immediately creamed his jeans and passed out cold for over an hour.

Time-lapse footage of the storm after the jump, triple strike happens right around 0:35.

Thanks to Lindsey, who's convinced Craig summoned that lightning and should be investigated.
