Lightning Strike

698 views Caroline Acheson June 6, 2020 Richmond Hill, Ontario Date shot: June 5, 2020

Central Richmond Hill near Bathurst and Carrville Rd. Our tall pine tree was hit by a bolt of lightning on Friday June 5 at 12:45 pm. There were low rumbles if thunder but no rain. The bam! Tree top exploded and it was smoking. Rain put the potential fire out. Super loud and super scary. Wood splinters were scattered for up to 150 metres. Our cat ran off and didn’t return for hours. Now he is scared to go out in the backyard. Cariline and Larry Acheson
