Lightning Downs Tree At Library



Fulton County Library Executive Director Jamie Brambley surveys a tree stuck by lightning behind the Fulton County Library last Wednesday during a severe thunderstorm at about 5 p.m. The strike sent wood chips and debris into the parking lot and temporarily knocked out electrical service as well as frightening many in the library with an explosive sound. Last week saw a number of electrical storms with high winds to go along with the scorching temperatures.
