August 31st 2014 will be a day that Live Storms Media storm chaser Danny Murphy will never forget. He encountered a tornadic thunderstorm that was filled with electricity with lightning strikes taking place nearly every second. Unfortunately, while documenting the storm, Danny was struck by what is referred to as a 'Step Leader' from the main lightning bolt seen just feet away. Luckily he survived the experience, but did suffer neurological and physical injuries from the lightning interaction, which left him in a Sioux City, Iowa hospital for 10 days.
