[californiadisasters] Possible Positive Bolt in Chula Vista Today
This afternoon in Chula Vista in San Diego County a lightening bolt struck a water main damaging it and blew out several nearby windows.
I do not know if this bolt struck a hydrant and then followed that down to the main or if it directly impacted the ground and traveled down through the soil and contacted the main that way.
Given what typically happens as a result of the much more garden variety and significantly weaker negative bolts I'd say this was a positive bolt although I cannot confirm that.
