A powerful thunderstorm rumbled through Casper last night between 5 and 6 PM. Along with .23 inches of rain, in the downtown area, a number of lightning strikes were seen and heard around Casper. In City Park, right across the street from the Elks Lodge, our friend Wes Stull was just getting into his vehicle when this tree was struck.

Wes shared these pics on Facebook and has allowed us to share them with you as well.
