As storms rolled through the Tampa Bay area, a Clearwater Police officer got a good photo of a lightning strike while cruising the beach.

This is proof that isn’t safe to be on the beach during a storm!

Since Tampa is the lightning capital of the US, we were bound to see a lightning strike caught on camera.

It is storm season, so not every story about lightning is about our Stanley Cup winning team. This one is about the kind that will send dogs hiding.

A Clearwater Police Department cruiser was near Clearwater Beach when its dashcam caught images of lightning close by. Very close by. The officer needed to tell people being in the beach is the wrong place to be.

The Clearwater Police Department also posted a video of lighting over the gulf.
