Although as many as 300 people are killed by lightning annually, some 700 victims actually survive the experience every year. This program gathers insight and information from a convention of lightning-strike survivors and goes on assignment with photographer Warren Faidley, who actually goes looking for electrical storms. Faidley acknowledges the danger of trying to capture his stunning, split-second images: each bolt of lightning can generate up to 200,000 amps of electricity and is more than five times hotter than the surface of the sun. Still, he knows of no better way to record the power and beauty of one of nature's most destructive forces.
