The first photo shows the violence of Mother Nature as it was unleashed on Wednesday with one severe thunderstorm after another moving through the Americus area. This cloud to ground lightning strike was captured from the loading dock of the Americus Times-Recorder, looking west.

In the next photo, by Kat Mourninghan, the aftermath of Monday’s severe thunderstorms was capped off with a serene and gorgeous sunset over Americus. This shot was taken on Forsyth Street, downtown.
