A lightning strike can take you down with extreme force.
This unlucky graveyard tree got nailed by a lightning bolt. Witness the still-burning tree hit by lightning the previous evening:
Facebook page WeatherNation did well by sharing this very frightening video of just how powerful nature can be. Embers burn and are fanned on by high winds. The damage from the lightning bolt is just massive. Grave stones are also damaged as can be witnessed in this video from the immense power of a lighting strike.
This spooky scene of a burning lightning-struck tree in a graveyard show cases the massive dangers lightning can be to the outdoors adventurer. The graveyard itself stands as a mute testimony on where you will most probably be after a lightning strike like this.
