Here is a video submitted through Report It of a lightning strike in Wahiawa on Sunday.

Mahalo to Mike Minami for sending it in.

Just a few safety reminders from Trini Kaopuiki:

When thunder roars, go indoors.

As you can see in the video, this strike was just across the street and hit the tallest metal object in the area.

If you hear thunder, lightning is close enough to strike you so you should immediately move to safe shelter.

If you are caught outside, get off elevated areas such as hills, mountain ridges or peaks.

And never lie flat on the ground, don’t seek shelter under an isolated tree, and stay away from wet or metal objects.
