The Nation

March 14, 1986

Thunderstorms with winds up to 100 m.p.h. battered the Southeast, injuring two people who were struck by lightning and ripping the Confederate flag and a section of copper from the South Carolina Statehouse dome. A second day's soaking of Alabama's parched woodlands allowed officials to cancel a fire alert after a 2 1/2-month siege of forest blazes that destroyed timber worth $2 million. In Georgia, a 9-year-old girl and a schoolteacher were hospitalized when they were struck by lightning near Macon.
