What Lightning Does to Poplar Trees in Georgia - July, 2007
July 16, 2007

Jack Bryan of Henry County sends these photos in to show what lightning does to poplar trees in Georgia. The tree was in a neighbor's yard. The lightning bolt first hit the top of a pine tree and jumped to the poplar, which exploded. Pieces of the tree were found in the yards of several neighbors.
