Can you hear that thunder? You better run and take cover, because that’s the sound of lightning hitting parts of Sydney, Australia on Friday afternoon. In the wild storm that swept across the city, the iconic Sydney Tower (formerly known as Centrepoint) suffered a direct lightning hit, captured in this stunning vision. 7News uploaded vision of the lightning appearing to hit the tower twice, striking fear into the hearts of office workers looking to have a leisurely lunch.
Instagram user Mike Morrow posted this image, which shows the bolt making contact with the top of the tower. The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a severe thunderstorm warning for the Sydney city area, with large hailstones, damaging and heavy rainfall forecasted for the afternoon. It’s not the first time the tower has been caught in the eye of the storm, with it happening in 2014 and 2013. FULL REPORT
