Lightning strike kills two, and injures third in Houston, Texas

 July 16, 2012TEXASTwo soccer players are dead and another is injured after lightning struck a tree that they were standing beneath to shelter from a storm in Houston. Harris County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Thomas Gilliland says rain halted a men’s league soccer club around noon on Sunday and the players all ran for cover under some nearby trees. Gilliland says lightning struck one of the trees, killing one of the men. Two others were also hit and taken to a Houston hospital, where a second man was pronounced dead. The third man is in stable condition at Ben Taub General Hospital. Authorities have not released the names of any of the men. The Houston area has been drenched by rain the past week, flooding between 50 and 100 homes. –CSM

    As native Texan, I knew better than go under some trees during lightning storm or any storm for that matter… it’s sad when people get killed this way.

    Alvin, not sure where to post this, but it could be an interesting development. Or it could mean nothing.

    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — A U.S. Navy ship opened fire on a small boat racing toward it Monday near the Gulf city of Dubai, killing one person, according to American officials.
    Lt. Greg Raelson, a spokesman for the Navy’s Bahrain-based 5th Fleet, said a security team aboard the USNS Rappahannock issued a series of warnings before resorting to lethal force near Dubai’s Jebel Ali port.
