Florida weather does not disappoint. A quick visit to Honeymoon Island State Park, FL (just west of Tampa, FL) led me on a nice local storm chase. The storm was severe warned at the time and dumped copious amounts of rain while thundering down a barrage of lightning bolts that sent all the people running for cover.At one point, a couple of women in a kayak were cap-sized as the storm blew in. Fortunately, they eventually made it to shore where they sought shelter in their vehicle.
Tampa Florida is known as the lightning strike capitol of the US. This storm put on a great, yet dangerous, display and lived up to its status.
