Lightning Strike where did hit
Description: We need your help. Watch the video and see if you can figure out where and what damage their is after this strike. We have an area about 400 yards total to work with. I was standing at the highest point on a bridge looking to my west over looking the mountain side below. The strike hit right in front of me. Why do we not see any major damge, or could we be missing it all together.

The tree looks like it got hit. -- cindybooth
Come on your joking right .. Lightning having no real punch, come on. You need to call in the J Show, I is sure he can find the strike. -- jodimiller
It hit the power lines, cause power went out -- BMB
I dont think it hit anything, is this possible -- karentoth
Most likely, it hit the power lines, which are made to take the charge. But we are still not sure. I have done a blog entry on this where you can see maps and read more about the placement of the strike at http://tinyurl.com/5fr8ey -- weathermatrix
