Intense Lightning and Tornado Warned Storm, Gilman, MN 7/14/2020

Amazing visual with constant cloud to cloud lightning that looked more like a strobe light was interrupted as the strong inflow continued late into the evening resulting in a tornado warned storm just after midnight this morning, 7/14.

No time lapse in this package or any special editing to the lightning clip. Lightning is raw and just constant flashing with crawling cloud to cloud lightning bolts.
