The following photo’s were submitted by Larry Bratcher who lives on Lawrence County Road 236.

Mr. Bratcher was on his back porch a week ago Thursday when storms moved through the Imboden area. Mr. Bratcher and his dog “Mya” were on their porch when lightning struck a tree just feet from the house and where they were standing.

Luckily Mr. Bratcher nor Mya were injured but property damage was another story. Not only did he lose his tree but the strike got his electrical panel, electric stove, electric dryer, printer and two satelites.

Thanks to Larry for the submission of photos and story.
