Lamb says the strike hit the top of the tree and traveled all the way down to the ground. After the storm passed, she and her family went outside to get a closer look of the damage. The impact sent pieces of bark flying about 60 feet away from the tree according to Lamb.

She says it was a great thing to witness-- from inside her home.
