Lightning Sets Palm Tree on Fire

Occurred on May 18, 2020 / Delhi, California, USA

Info from Licensor: "At around 5:55 PM, a severe thunderstorm passed over. My friend and I were outside filming the hard rain, hail, thunder, and lightning. All of a sudden, we heard a very very loud thunder crash. Lightning had struck a palm tree of a neighbor about 60-70 yards away. The tree was very dry and proceeded to engulf in flames. Charred debris from the tree was blowing everywhere from the high winds. The tree was weakened and had to be cut down that day."
