SAN JOSE (KRON) - During Sunday's hailstorm in San Jose, a bolt of lightning struck a transformer and it was all caught on video. 

Ryan Phann was recording the moment lightning hit a transformer causing it to explode. 

The explosion could be seen and heard for blocks. 

The lightning came during a hailstorm that ripped through the Bay Area Sunday. 

There was so much hail in the South San Jose, it looked like snow.
