The blast blew a chunk of tree inside the porch and it stuck in the sheetrock.
Those powerlines to the house were down as well.

Looks like the lightning hit the tree and caused the water in it to flash boil, making an improvised explosive :eek:

:( Poor tree. It really is a sight when lightening hits a live oak or something like that.
