I WILL HAVE THE VERY LATEST ON THIS LINE AND WERE STORMS ARE DEVELOPING LATER TONIGHT. I WILL SEE YOU BACK IN JUST A COUPLE OF MINUTES. PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT IT EVERYWHERE TODAY. AND YOU SEE IT RIGHT THERE. CRAZY LIGHTNING THAT LIT UP THE NIGHT SKY. THIS IS VIDEO ON TOP OF MOUNT WASHINGTON FROM ALBY OXENREITER’S SON. Reporter: WE ARE HERE ON MOUNT WASHINGTON AND THIS IS WHERE FREELANCE PHOTOGRAPHER DAVID BRAVED LAST NIGHT THE STORM AND CAPTURED THESE INCREDIBLE IMAGES. WHEN I GOT THAT PERSONAL LIGHTNING STRIKE I WAS LIKE A YES!. IT’S REALLY FUN. Reporter: THE STORM ROLLED THROUGH PITTSBURGH AROUND 9 PM LAST NIGHT. DAVE POSITIONED HIMSELF ON GRANDVIEW AVENUE AND TOOK THIS AMAZING TIME-LAPSE VIDEO. THEY WERE SOME OF THE BIGGEST AND MOST FREQUENT BOTH I’VE EVER SEEN. Reporter: HE USED TO TRIGGER DEVICE WITH A WIDE ANGLE LENS, HE SHARED HIS PICTURES WITH CHANNEL 11. THAT SHOW THE HUGE BOLTS OF LIGHTNING INCLUDING ONE WITH THREE SIMULTANEOUS BOLTS. THIS IS THE TRIPLE LIGHTNING STRIKE THAT SIMULTANEOUSLY HIT. THAT ONE HIT ON THE OTHER SIDE OF 279. Reporter: DURING A TORRENTIAL DOWNPOUR LIGHTNING GOT TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT AND HE RAN FOR COVER BUT THEN DECIDED TO GO BACK. EVERY LIGHTNING STRIKE IS DIFFERENT AND EVERY STORM I TRY TO MAKE IT OUT. STORMS COME IN DIFFERENT PLACES, IT IS A RUSH. Reporter: DAY SAYS HE PLANS ON TAKING MORE STORM PICTURES TODAY. REPORTING FROM MOUNT
