Sarah Ribardi stepped outside her front door just seconds before a bolt of lightning struck a tree in her neighbor's yard, sending debris flying inches from her face.

We are assuming that it was a home security system that captured the video above, showing the debris field created by the strike. The crash of lightning combined with the flying debris sent Ribardi right back into the house and sent a cat scrambling for cover.

On her Facebook page, you can see the aftermath of the lightning strike. We are glad everyone is ok!
