A video out of Phoenix, Arizona, shows lightning striking the ground startlingly close to a local reporter as he prepared to go on camera.
Matt Rodewald, who works for Phoenix’s Fox affiliate, was covering the monsoon storms in the area on Wednesday. Just before he began his live report, the lightning hit. According to a tweet from the station, it knocked out power in the vicinity, which you can see in the clip.
In a remarkable display of calm, he still did his segment.
