Weell..this just happened a few months ago when we had heave rains here. It was night time and all in the neighbourhood were sleeping, but we were woken all of a sudden by this terrible thunder, and were flabbergasted to see the coconut tree on fire!!!..it was then we realized that it was struck by a lightening!..I haven't heard of anything like it before, but was just very greatful that it hadn't struck on any lives!!...Has anyone experienced or heard of such a thing???

I think thats why they say you shouldnt stand under a tree during a lightening storm. Ive never seen it happen but Im absolutely terrified of lightening. I love the sound of thunder but lightening *tremble tremble* I think buildings are grounded against lightening so you are safest in the house, unless a coconut tree on fire falls on your house ofcourse. Anyway glad you are all safe and sound.
