SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Lightning hit a tree in front of a Sacramento home overnight, sending chunks of the tree everywhere.

The homeowner says he heard a loud crash around midnight during the lightning storm.

“It was like a bomb hit the house or a plane had crashed,” said homeowner Matthew Silver. “There’s bits of the tree three or four houses down. The neighbor’s window was cracked.”

Part of the tree hit the home’s water main, leaving the family without water. They also have damage to their roof.
