23 Photos of Last Night’s Crazy Thunderstorm Crossing the Outer Banks

Last night just before dark, a giant red blob on the radar crept across our skinny little strip of land here on the Outer Banks. The storm crossed mostly in Duck/Southern Shores but everyone North and South had an amazing view of lightning and cloud formations. The icing on the cake was the sunset which added an array of colors to the sky’s palette. Luckily no damage was done as this storm was all bark and no bite.

Last night, all eyes (and cameras) were focused on this amazing natural event. Below are some images grabbed from social media sites from both spectators and professional lens-man that littered the web last night and today.

To make this fun, head over to our Facebook page (by clicking here) and vote for your favorite photographer in this group of photos by writing their name in the comments section. The winning photographer will get a prize pack from OBXsurfinfo.com and be announced 1 week from today (Thursday, July 21st). We will also send out a little something for a handful of voters. Especially if you share!
