Huh. This is a strange and interesting news. Was it confirmed that she had synesthesia? It could be something else entirely.

it will strike the tallest object which was that tree had someone been standing there they would of been killed. i would say in this case was struck from above ground traveled to bottom and who knows where it went from there

Living in Orlando, it's common knowledge that a healthy palm tree makes a perfect lighting rod, primarily because its core is almost liquid, which makes for a great conductor.

Does lightning strike from the sky down, or the ground up? The answer is both. Cloud-to-ground lightning comes from the sky down, but the part you see comes from the ground up. A typical cloud-to-ground flash lowers a path of negative electricity (that we cannot see) towards the ground in a series of spurts. Objects on the ground generally have a positive charge. Since opposites attract, an upward streamer is sent out from the object about to be struck. When these two paths meet, a return stroke zips back up to the sky. It is the return stroke that produces the visible flash, but it all happens so fast - in about one-millionth of a second - so the human eye doesn't see the actual formation of the stroke.

Ouch, even watching that hurts. Hopefully the tree lives, sometimes the damage is severe and/or hidden.

Gee. Maybe they should have warned us to turn down the volume on our speakers.

This is an interesting case. I have never seen this happen on the job yet. Glad she was okay though regardless.
