Lots of TV reporters have hilarious stories to tell about wild weather ruining their prepared pieces-to-camera but few are quite as, em, electrifying as this one.

KSAZ (FOX) Phoenix reporter Matt Rodewald was preparing to go live to cover the monsoon storm that struck Arizona last week when a bolt of lightening struck nearby.

The strike was so powerful that it knocked out power in the immediate area leaving some 14,000 homes without power.

Be careful out there.
