Rare Lightning Strike Kills Man On California Beach
July is the most dangerous time of year for lightning in the United States. Yesterday, a rare, intense lightning storm struck Venice Beach in Southern California. One person was killed and nine others were taken to hospitals, where one was listed in critical condition.
Witnesses say the storm was fierce and came out of nowhere. Earlier in the day, lightening struck a 57-year-old man on a golf course off the coast on Santa Catalina Island. He was listed in stable condition.
