Vivid lightning struck the Boston area yet again last evening. I headed to Revere Beach, as I did a few days ago, due to the strong storms that were headed toward Swampscott and Lynn etc. I snapped these people checking out the show. EDITORS NOTE: Lightning is the second leading killer in the “hazardous weather killing” category so…don’t try this at home! Also, that is the Massachusetts State Police Revere barracks in the first photo. Herald story is here.
I happened upon this scene seconds after the police scanner crackled about a car crash at the intersection of Clarendon and Commonwealth Ave. A Fisher College cop who had just ended his overnight shift assisted one of the victims by jumping into her flipped car and holding her hand. My colleague Laura Crimaldi takes over the story here. A photo gallery can be seen here.
