FYI, The Eye Of Sauron Has Been Found In A Tree

Nature is scary.

When lightning strikes, you would normally expect to see heavy rains and flooding.

But in Mississippi, it's a different story.

James Spann is a certified broadcast meteorologist from America, and retweeted Twitter user @jkroxie's photo of a tree that was struck by lightning.

The North-Eastern regions of the US state have been subject to severe thunderstorms.

People could not believe how dystopian the photo seemed.

While some drew parallels with Lord of the Rings, others tweeted explainers for the incredible phenomenon.

Keep your rings safe this thunderstorm, Mississippi.
