Watch: Lightning strike hitting the ground caught on camera

Severe weather was caught on camera in California this week.

Get ready, this one will make you jump!

The man who got this picture was recording a hail storm when the bolt hit the ground just a few feet away.

But amazingly, he claims he didn’t see the lightning when it happened.

The man says he heard a loud crash, but it wasn’t until he played back the footage that he actually saw the lightning strike.

Frame by frame, the photographer says the strike only took one-thirtieth of a second.
