Storm Videos Interview with WFLA in Dunedin, Florida – 08/18/2016

This past summer, on Augus 18, 2016, I witnessed an impressive lightning storm in Dunedin, Florida.  The lightning video caught the attention of WFLA News out of Tampa, Florida and they requested an interview.  Below is the entire quoted interview with Jamel Lanee’ along with the link to the original post on their site.  Enjoy!

“DUNEDIN, Fla. (WFLA) — Lightning storms lit up the skies around Tampa Bay Wednesday evening.  Caleb Elliot, a storm chaser out of Kansas City captured mother nature at its best.

Caleb says he was at the Dunedin Causeway when storms blew in around 5 p.m. He captured several strikes of lightning on his camera near Honeymoon Island.

In the distance, Elliot noticed several females in kayaks, caught in the rainstorm. He said the lightning got very close to them.

“Initially, I didn’t even realize there was somebody in the shot I was doing,  but in between the islands, there’s one shot of lightning that comes down, maybe a half mile away from where they are at,” said Elliot.”

The women struggled to get back to shore. They even capsized several times.  Elliot said they eventually made it out and ran for cover to their vehicle.

There was also a woman jogging during the storms, who he offered shelter to until the rain passed.

Elliot has been in Florida for two weeks and as a storm chaser, he says the weather here lives up to its reputation.

“I will say that Florida has not disappointed me with the weather so far,” said Elliot.

Largo fire officials said lightning was the cause of a house fire on Shoreline Drive shortly before 10 p.m. on Wednesday. The owner said his wife called him when they saw smoke.

“The house shook, it got hit by lightning in the back,” said Anthony Competelli.

Even though Elliot is a storm chaser, he remembers safety and tries to capture the beauty from his vehicle.

“Yesterday was one of the best lightning shows I’ve seen in probably five years of storm chasing,” he said.”
