Lightning strike creates 15-feet hole in concrete floor

A powerful bolt of lightning zapped the parking lot of a Chevron gas station blowing a 15-foot hole into the thick concrete and sending debris flying.

The police quickly found out, the blast, which was caught on a nearby security camera and said that it could have been much, much worse.

The lightning struck the ground in one of the worst possible spots. It blew a hole right through the six-inch-thick concrete that covers a massive diesel tank. Pieces of concrete flew as far as 75 feet, but it was the exposed tank that caused the most concern.

Officials were quick to respond to the scene and determined that despite the damage, no active leaks were reported.
