CLEARWATER, FL – Police in Clearwater are advising beachgoers to get off the beach and out of harm’s way during a passing storm that had several bolts of lightning strike in the vicinity of Pier 60. Police said the images were captured on their dashcams inside their patrol vehicles.
“The beach is no place to be when lightning is near. Just ask any local meteorologist. These images were captured safely from inside one of our cruisers. An officer had to tell multiple people that they shouldn’t be on the beach for their own safety,” the Clearwater Police department said.
