Watch: Lightning nearly strikes Painesville home in eye-opening video


NORTHEAST OHIO (WJW) — Multiple counties in Northeast Ohio were once again under a severe thunderstorm watch earlier Monday, the National Weather Service announced.

Northeast Ohio has experienced multiple thunderstorm and flood watches and warnings over the past week.

Today, even those areas not on the former watch list, were also hit with rain and even lightning through much of the morning. The video above shows a lightning strike hitting a tree not too far from one FOX 8 viewer’s home in Painesville in Lake County.

The video is courtesy Lola Sisler and occurred in the Liberty Greens subdivision.

Residents are advised to be careful when going outside today.
