You know how they say you shouldn't be in the water during a thunderstorm? Well this video is an example of why. Paul Ragsdale posted this video on YouTube of lightning striking dangerously close to a fishing boat. The lightning strike was so close you can hear the cracking noise the bolt of lightning makes when hitting the water. According to the Facebook page listed under the YouTube description it seems as though this video was taken on Lake Athens in Texas. Watch the video below.
