Bolts of lightning streaked through the sky above eastern Nebraska in the early hours of Sunday, October 24, as severe weather impacted the region.
Police in Council Bluffs, Iowa — adjacent to Omaha — reported that power lines were struck by lightning overnight. In Lincoln, Nebraska, a charity race was cancelled due to safety concerns, according to authorities.
This footage — slowed down to capture lightning bolts — was filmed in the early hours of Sunday by Twitter user @spclincoln1056, who said it was taken from Waverly, a town located northeast of Lincoln.
Chances for thunderstorms continued to linger on Sunday and flash flooding and hail were possible, the NWS said. Credit: @spclincoln1056 via Storyful
