Reports are coming in that two hundred fish exploded and an otter got a fried arse.

Godzilla fart, I’ve seen it before.

Note the orange smoke. That’s likely NOx from a nitrogen-based explosive. Lightning does not make orange smoke. Note also the timing of the up-welling of the water. That’s from timed charges. Lightning would be near instantaneous.

Lightning or not, who’s hungry? Soup’s on.

I’ve been on the water sailing when lightning struck nearby.

No steam, no splash, but a helluva bang.
