This direct lightning strike hit about 10 feet away from the camera. The current destroyed every thing linked to the wires including security cameras, a large flatscreen TV, landline telephones and the power converters. About $1,000 worth of stuff. The camera was on a tripod on our porch and we were safely inside about 15 feet from the strike. All our dogs were inside. Anytime a storm approaches we make sure all pets are inside and unplug computers etc. This is the 6th time we have been hit in 17 years.
