Georgia Weather History for February 13th

In 2000, lightning struck three U.S. Army Ranger instructors and 48 trainees on a field training exercise at Camp Frank D. Merrill near Dahlonega. The lightning bolt struck as the soldiers were moving to low ground because of the weather. Some of the victims were knocked unconscious, others were semi-conscious, while others weren't visibly affected. Most were treated for their injuries and released, however two soldiers remained hospitalized the next day, one in intensive care.
