Storm Splits Giant Tree At Metzger Elem

Driving by my daughters school at Metzger Elementary we find one of the giant trees split in half in the field where children play just a few feet from the parking lot . The storm took out power to most of Tigard and Metzger. Luckily nobody was in field at the time the tree was hit by lightning.
