Like many in Ocean County, I was woken up by some of the loudest and most vivid thunder and lightning that I've ever seen.

Just take a look at this map of lightning hits from about 9:00 this morning:

The storms not only spawned dangerous downpours and the aforementioned heavy lightning, but a water spout was spotted around the border of Brick and Mantoloking.

The worst of it seems to be over at this point, with a few showers still lingering as of this writing.

Before the day is over though, we could even see the sun show up, and this weekend is thankfully looking nice too.
