    Close Call from lightning strike while we were standing outside


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     It felt like "a huge explosion," but what startled this Tullahoma, Tennessee, neighborhood was actually lightning striking a tree. Molly Hall was filming the heavy rain from inside her home when the lighting struck on a neighbor's lot across the street. "It was crazy. I didn't even know what it was at first. It seemed like a huge explosion," she said.

    Across the street, Kurt and Carla Glick were on their front porch watching the rain when the lightning hit. "It sounded like a bomb," said Kurt. "My wife hit her mouth on the door and chipped part of her front tooth. … It just knocked us back."
