Massive explosion caused by lightning strike rocks Sunshine Coast

WATCH THE VIDEO: A massive explosion caused by lightning hitting powerlines on the Sunshine Coast has been caught on dashcam.

Higgins Storm Chasing shared the video overnight.

"Watch this absolutely CRAZY explosion from a lightning strike hitting power lines during the height of our storm chase!" the post reads.

"It was so blinding it took us a while to work out what had actually happened.

"As we continued home to Maleny there was lots of debris including a large tree blocking the road on a blind corner.

"We managed to hook onto it with the 4WD and pull it off the road. Filmed near Woodford, Peachester and Maleny,"
