A severe thunderstorm roared through Calhoun County midday Friday. There was no significant structural damage reported around the county, but this tree on the Calhoun City Square was struck by lightning. The weekend forecast doesn't call for any more severe storms, but instead severe heat. The highs on Sunday and Monday are expected to exceed 100 degrees.
