HUBBARD, Ohio (WKBN) – A woman was riding her tractor when a tree was struck by lightning and fell.
Renee McConnell lives in the 3100 block of Pothour Wheeler Road in Hubbard.
She heard thunder and saw a flash.
The lightning hit the tree and it blew apart around 2:30 p.m. The tree nearly hit her.
Luckily, no one was hurt.
“I was so jazzed up, all of the hair on my body was standing straight up, and I was in shock for a few minutes, and then I realized, ‘Oh my God, that tree just blew apart,'” McConnell said.
Some other plants were damaged by the fall.
McConnell was in good spirits but realizes “she has a lot of work to do.”
