Lightening struck tree

Lightening struck tree detail

On Sunday morning as I started down Benton Street, there was a loud explosion. A thunderstorm was approaching so I presumed a lightening strike. Just down the hill, in the parking lot behind the Log Cabin Inn I found this. The tree was blown to shreds, I'm thinking a steam explosion in the wet rotted core of an already dead tree (there was no greenery). Shreds were blown around in a bout a fifty foot diameter circle, and into the street.
