Lightning bolt decimates tree at Texas school (VIDEO)
The startling video was recorded by a security camera at Bishop Thomas K. Gorman Catholic School in the city of Tyler on January 21, and later published by local TV station KLTV.
Gorman Lightning Strike!
One of the awesome powers of nature. #LIGHTNING!!! Check out this video sent to me by Felipe Natera at Bishop Thomas K. Gorman Catholic School. Shortly after 9:35 yesterday morning, right after the kids made it to class safely, lightning struck the big tree on the left side of this picture. Today at 4, 5, 6 and 10 on KLTV-7 News, we will see this video in slow motion and I will show you something very, very interesting about this event. Again, no one was injured. All were in class, safe and sound. The strike is 28 seconds into the video.Posted by Mark Scirto KLTV on Friday, January 22, 2016
