3:32 Am - thunder and a huge light show - WOW. Sat up and watched as lighting strikes were all over the area. 7:14 Am - two GIANT crashes directly overhead. Like bombs. WOW.

So maybe the lightening hit the power station? There is one over on Colorado and West Bayshore. What happened at 7:14 was HUGE. Two massive hits directly over the house- so it seemed. Like a plane falling into the houses - but no planes out there. The city needs to tell us if a power station was directly hit.

The other story line on this topic says the lightening hit a power pole.
