A SUNSHINE Coast resident has captured the moment lightning struck Mt Coolum during a severe thunderstorm.
Phil Staatz took the photo on Friday, September 22, during one of the first storms to hit the Coast this storm season.
"I shared it on the Higgins Storm Chasing site and it had a huge response, the biggest response Higgins has seen in a long time."
