It was a shockingly close call for a woman in Morgan City, Louisiana. Sarah Ribardi was leaving her home, when all of a sudden, lightning struck a tree right next door.
The strike was intense, and dramatic video shows debris raining down around her as she runs inside her home.
"It felt a little bit like it kind of pushed me back a little bit," Ribardi told Inside Edition. "Right after it happened, I was kind of shaking a little bit. It was scary."
Right after Ribardi went inside to safety, a cat can be seen running by on the video.
"I'm guessing she just ran home," Ribardi said.
