never strikes twice

Watch downtown Chicago get hit by a triple lightning strike in this incredible video

The city’s three tallest skyscrapers were struck simultaneously and captured on film.

THE UPPER MIDWEST region of the US was battered yesterday by a ‘derecho’ storm, which left hundreds of thousands of people without power.

The city of Chicago saw some of the worst weather, including a violent thunderstorm that saw the city’s famous buildings hit several times by huge bolts of lightning.

This video captures Chicago’s three tallest skyscrapers – the Sears (now Willis) Tower, the Trump Tower and the John Hancock centre – being struck simultaneously.
