We've seen some amazing videos today as storms moved through the area, but watch as lighting strikes a pole in Opelousas and causes a transformer to explode.

If you were in Opelousas on Wednesday and without power, this may be the reason. This dramatic footage was caught on a dashboard camera as someone was driving down Creswell Lane.
