Donald Trump shared a dramatic image of a lightning strike behind Air Force One when the weather forced him to stop a tour of Hurricane Doric damage.
The president tweeted last night the image of a vertical flash of lightning flashing in the gloomy sky at a Marine Corps Air Force station in North Carolina.
& # 39; Departure from MCAS Cherry Point in North Carolina to Fayetteville, North Carolina. This is great!, & He wrote.
Trump had planned a helicopter flight with Governor Roy Cooper to view the damage, but was instead informed of the presidential plane.
Donald Trump shared this dramatic image of a lightning strike behind Air Force One at an airbase in North Carolina yesterday.
The president said, "This is great," because the weather forced him to stop a tour of Hurricane Dorian
The lightning struck shortly after his arrival at the Havelock air station and the secret service told the waiting crowd that Trump would not be coming.
Reporter Steve Brusk said the photo was taken of where journalists were.
Government Cooper, a democrat, says that there were three deaths in the state related to the storm and that 3500 people still have no power.
Flood waters withdrawing from the Outer Banks of North Carolina have left a muddy trail of destruction.
Dorian hit parts of the islands on Friday as it makes its way along the east coast after hitting the Bahamas.

Cooper says he appreciated the President's efforts to look personally at the damage and called on the government to approve an accelerated disaster statement.
Trump then flew to Fayetteville, where he rallied for Republican Dan Bishop in a meticulous special election that is taking place today.
Bishop runs against democrat Dan McCready in a republican leaning congress district.
Last year's elections were never certified in the district because of a fraud probe and the North Carolina Board of Elections ordered a repeat.
Trump said a vote for Democrats was a vote for the rise of radical socialism and the destruction of the American dream.
He urged voters in North Carolina to take & # 39; take the first steps & # 39; in the direction of removing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and & # 39; winning the house in 2020. & # 39;
