Were the people who were struck hit on the main beach? Like in front of the board walk and all the shops?

I was on the beach that day! We left when we saw the dark clouds, rain and lightning coming in across the water. We just drove back to our campsite and waited in our truck until the storm calmed down.

This is so horrible and creepy, because I actually said, "I'm afraid for those people on the beach," because a bunch of people weren't leaving.

It's even more unfortunate if she was pregnant...
