Two North Carolina girls were shocked at what happened when they stepped off their school bus.

Sisters Abby and Anna Morefield were walking home from the bus stop in Craven County Friday afternoon when a lightning strike hit right near them. The strike knocked the 9 and 12-year-old girls to the ground, and EMS crews were called to their home.

WCTI spoke to the girls, who said they had odd, flower-shaped marks on their arms right after the lightning strike.

Otherwise, the girls were not injured.
