When lightning hits a river . If you ever doubted the power of nature. This is known as dry lighting which can start forest fires. Not this time!

Commercial explosives, certainly not lightning.
Seen explosives in action in the Falklands the detonator cord can be seen flashing to the left or the frame just before it goes boom. Lightning would be almost vertical with little after shock. I have seen lightning hit the sea from a boat, one hell of a bang but very little disturbance to the water.
