A commuter train in Tokyo was struck by lightning yesterday and all the internet got out of it was this really cool weather video of lightning hitting a train. Thankfully, no one was hurt, but the train system (which runs on a electric track) was knocked out briefly and passengers were left with nothing to do but tweet pictures of their blacked out train cars.
Skip ahead to about the 1:15 mark to see the real action. Thanks to Kotaku for being able to speak Japanese and confirming the details.
