This lightning strike occurred on Thursday just southeast of the courthouse square near my in-law's home. Note the bark-less portion of the tree. It was stripped by the lightning strike. One photo shows the bark still on part of the tree limb. This poplar tree was some 100 feet tall and had the upper 1/3 of it knocked out. This is a powerful reminder that lighting is a deadly and powerful force.
