Satellite video showed dozens of lightning strikes within Hurricane Dorian’s boundaries as the storm approaches the Florida coast.

Videos posted Thursday and into Friday morning showed huge amounts of electrical activity both by satellite and from the ground — in some case, as far away as Miami.

The increase in lightning strikes within the storm may be a signal that Dorian is still intensifying, lending credibility to reports which have suggested that it could be a Category 4 storm by the time the hurricane reaches landfall.

Although Dorian is still days from reaching Florida’s coast, the impact of the storm is already being seen in the sky in Miami and Cocoa Beach.
