When thunder approaches be aware of lightning! This 75 foot tree was destroyed with a bolt of lightning off Haygood Road in Martin, Tennessee. The explosion of the trees and bark 60 feet away and caused damage to powerlines and a transformer and minor damage to a shed while knocking pictures off the wall. Two children were eyewitnesses to the lightning and said all they could see was the lightning causing everything to go so bright.
A massive lightning bolt struck a tree just north of Martin off Haygood Road. Weakley County Municipal Electric was called to replace a power line that was slammed into a pond. The lightning strike took out the neighborhood power. Bark from the tree was found 75 feet away.
Watch the video on why you don’t want to stand under a tree when it’s lightning.
