Footage shows massive lightning storm over Australia

This incredible video captured the moment a massive electrical storm lit up the night sky over Australia’s north.

Geoff Green captured the footage in Kimberley, WA, on Saturday as Tropical Cyclone Dahlia moved over the coast.

But while the storm looks impressive, Weatherzone meteoreologist Graeme Brittain says they are not that rare.

‘They’re quite common in the Kimberley area but with that area being very remote, not many people living there, the chances of it being filmed are not very common,’ he told Nine.com.au.

He said the storm occurred because the heat across northern Australia provides the energy needed for it to develop.

However, Mr Brittain said that the storms are dangerous due to the amount of lightning and the safest place for those in the vicinity is in a vehicle – not under trees or in the open.
