Deadly lightning strike was rare event for Southern California coast

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 07/29/2014 - 03:57
By Steve Gorman and Dana Feldman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Lightning storms that killed a 20-year-old beachgoer in Los Angeles and sent eight other people to the hospital stemmed from a combination of atmospheric conditions relatively unusual for coastal Southern California, weather experts said on Monday. A bolt of lightning, accompanied by what witnesses described as an explosive thunder clap, struck near the shore of Venice Beach on Sunday during a storm that materialized quickly and lasted about 15 minutes. An estimated 20,000 people were at the popular Los Angeles beach when the storm hit, according to Captain Mike McIlroy of the county lifeguard service. Thirteen people who were in or around the water at the time of the strike were assessed by emergency personnel and eight were transported to hospitals, according to Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Katherine Main.
