According to the description, the cars were not damaged by the lightning, but by floods. It indeed looks impressive though! It almost looks like the lightning (if that is what it is) melted things instantly, so much so that the end product looks like a lava explosion.

There is also a video by China News which unfortunately doesn't have sound or includes the damaged vehicles.


A high-voltage power line in Shenyang was struck by lightning, sparks splashed like a "fire dragon" to the tall buildings

At 17:53 on August 3, near a residential area in Tiexi District, Shenyang City, Liaoning Province, a high-voltage wire struck by lightning ignited weeds in the lawn and a fire broke out. A large number of sparks burst out on the scene, causing no casualties. The lightning strike did not cause damage to the high-voltage line, and the current power supply is normal

Translated by google

That was a massive lightning bolt (if it was a natural event). The cars were pretty much destroyed. I haven't seen anything like that.

From the Daily Mail:

Terrifying moment huge fireball blazes above a Chinese city after a bolt of lightning hit high-voltage power lines
A lightning bolt has ignited a massive fireball over a Chinese city after it struck high-voltage power lines.

Footage shows a loud bang rocking the city of Shenyang today before a blaze broke out seconds after, leaving residents in shock.

The blast occurred near several tower blocks but caused no casualties, according to the country's state media.

The incident did not cause any damage to the public facility or interrupt the local electrical services, the outlet claimed


The event took place during the evening rush hour in the Tiexi District of Shenyang, the provincial capital of Liaoning, reported state broadcaster CCTV.

A flash of lightning hit the transmission lines nearly a residential compound, sparking a fire on the grass underneath.

The incident did not cause any damage to the public facility or interrupt the local electrical services, the outlet claimed.


Shenyang, a city of 8million in north-eastern China, has been battered by torrential downpours today.

At nearly 11pm local time, the city's meteorological bureau declared a red alert for rainstorms, the highest level in China's four-tier colour-coded weather warning system.

The warning was followed by an orange alert, the second-highest level, around 15 minutes later.

The city was hit by heavy rainfall of up to 70.1 millimetres per hour between 3pm to 8pm today, the local government said.

Officials activated the second-highest level of alert for flood control in the city as a response to the adverse weather.

According to a video from the South China Morning Post the lightning bolt struck a building under construction NOT the high-voltage power lines as widely reported causing the massive fireball.


It reminds me of something Pierre wrote about mentioned in this SOTT article:

In Earth Changes and the Human-Cosmic Connection, Pierre Lescaudron presents the possibility that certain types of buildings or factories can act as attractors for dramatic electrical discharges, possibly 'sparked' - via electrical discharges 'at a distance' - by incoming comet fragments or meteors, or unusual atmospheric conditions producing strong lightning strikes and even 'invisible' discharges.
