COTTON VALLEY, La. – A line of strong thunderstorms put on quite a display of lightning for passengers flying over the Gulf Coast on Saturday night.
Rachel Nutter was seated by a window on her flight from Atlanta to Wichita, Kansas and had a front-row seat to the dazzling electric show as she flew over Cotton Valley, Louisiana.
"The lightning was constant for the entire time we were near the storms," Nutter told Storyful.
Radar imagery from the time showed a line of thunderstorms stretching hundreds of miles from southeastern Texas across northwestern Louisiana and into southern Arkansas.
Several severe thunderstorm warnings were issued through the night along the line with reports of damaging winds toppling trees as the storms passed through the region.
