All tag results for lightning
…wait. Where are the lights?
A Boston weatherman was stunned when lightning struck the studio he was reporting live in, subsequently cutting the power off!
The blackout only lasted a second, though. And the weatherman bravely continued his segment.
Thankfully, the internet exists so you can see it all for yourself (above)!
Here's what he said on Twitter:
"Glad I dont use profanity when bolt struck the building, scared the #@%& out of me!"
Even though it was more 'professional' not to use profanity - we think that in terms of television, nothing could've been better.
You think this story surprises you? William Moseley was shocked!
The actor best known for his portrayal of Peter Pevensie in the Chronicles of Narnia trilogy was on the set of his new film The Silent Mountain, when the high altitude set was struck by lightning.
Peter William reassured his fans, tweeting:
Yes, they switched places and now Paul Wesley is discovering the wonders of plastic surgery, while Joan Rivers tries to navigate the tender emotions of being a vampire…
NAHHH, but Joan and Paul were on the same plane that got zapped by lightning on Friday the 13th!
The sexy Vampire said about the scuury experience:
As soon as the lightning bolt struck Richard Branson's dream home in the Caribbean, chaos ensued just the scene of a disaster movie.
That's how Kate Winslet describes it. She says she kept waiting for someone to yell, "CUT!" but it never came.
Fortunately, nobody fell fatal to the huge fire, which completely destroyed Richards mansion.
Still in shock, Kate admits it's an ordeal she will "never forget," adding "it's a miracle no one died."
The movie star continues:
In the Black Eyed Peas song I Gotta Feeling, they sing they "party every day, p-p-p-party every day." Looks like those words DON'T apply to days with precipitation. Ha!
Last night, BEP cancelled on a crowd of THOUSANDS of fans who were waiting in Central Park for EIGHT HOURS in extreme heat, and then rain, to see the group perform!
The police department claimed that everything was being shut down due to lightning, to which the crowd of 20,000+ fans chanted "WE WON'T GO!"
The concert was set up to benefit the Robin Hood foundation, and here's what the organization had to say about it the situation in a statement:
"The heat wasn't going to stop them, the rain wasn't going to stop them, but the lightning-it stopped them. It came down to safety for everyone."
According to the foundation's website, they hope to reschedule the concert and they'll have more info "in the next week or so."
Certainly seems like this was out of the Black Eyed Peas' control, but we can def see why fans would be PO'd.
What do U think about this? Do fans have the right to be pissed, even though the show was cancelled due to weather?
