Amazing video: Willis Tower repeatedly struck by lightning

It’s an event that’s not uncommon, but still jarring to see.

The Willis Tower was struck by lightning Monday night, more than once.

It’s not unusual for lightning to strike the tower because it’s the tallest point in the area.

But lightning rods, built into the tower, ensure that the electrical force of the lightning is safely routed into the ground.
