KINGSLAND, Texas (KXAN) — A tree still glowed with heat Thursday, a day after a bolt of lightning struck it at a Kingsland golf course.
Viewer Ronna Wilson sent us photos of the tree at Legends Golf Course that was smoldering from the strike a day after it was hit.
Storms that have the potential to produce lightning strikes are rolling through the KXAN viewing area the rest of the week. With periods of heavy rains at times, localized and flash flooding are possible and low water crossing could become impassable.
Naga Munchetty was replaced by Nina Warhurst on Saturday’s edition of BBC Breakfast following the presenter’s absence from the show. Viewers will usually see Naga and her co-host Charlie Stayt at the start of the weekend but due to other commitments, various BBC presenters on occasion will step in for the regular Breakfast hosts.
Following Naga’s absence, the 46-year-old was flooded with messages of support after a social media troll posted a “mean” insult online.
The Breakfast host reacted to the brutal swipe, in view of her 255,000 followers.
In a now-deleted tweet, the person in question wrote: “Lovely to watch breakfast TV this morning without the dreadful Naga.”
The broadcaster offered a sarcastic response to the social media user.
Across the country, people are honouring the patron saint of England by flying English flags and celebrating our heritage.
Social media users have flocked to the micro-blogging site in honour of today’s celebration.
Footballer Harry McGuire penned: “Happy #StGeorgesDay! Always proud to represent our country.”
While Keir Starmer offered: “This #StGeorgesDay, I want to thank everyone in England who has worked so hard to keep us safe over the last year. Your service and commitment means there is now light at the end of the tunnel. On behalf of @UKLabour, thank you to all on the frontline.”
Yorkshire Shepherdess Amanda Owen, 46, took to Twitter tonight to address a viewer’s complaint about how late Our Yorkshire Farm airs on Tuesday evenings. The programme starts at 9pm on Channel 5, which one fan argued was too late for her children to stay up and tune in.
The viewer shared the issue after Amanda gushed over the viewing figures that the latest series of her show is currently achieving.
She penned in view of her 158,000 followers: “Nearly FOUR MILLION people tuned in !
“So if you didn’t know about it then now you do !
“Join us all TONIGHT at 9pm on @channel5_tv for the next episode of #ouryorkshirefarm

This included a segment about a garden on a houseboat, which first aired last year.
While the follower wasn’t too pleased with its inclusion, plenty of other viewers praised the show.
One wrote: “Wow, I was so proud of my paltry pots until seeing your drifts of fritillaries, Fabulous.”
“Fabulous my perfect evening in,” added another fan of the gardening show.
A third penned: “Thoroughly enjoyed all of Monty Don’s garden programs. Learnt (sic) a lot.”
“Cannot wait!”, wrote another while a fifth added: “Looking forward to it.”
Monty often responds to his followers on Twitter about the show, including when he addressed a BBC complaint last week.
A viewer complained about the show being on at 9pm, which was a bit late for them.
They penned: “Slightly disappointed it’s not on until 9pm. Will it always be at this time?”
Monty agreed with them, replying: “Me too. I hope not.”
More fans flooded the comments section, urging the user to “walk a mile in Kate’s shoes” before judging.
“So sad that you feel compelled to post this. Feel really sorry for you. You must be really miserable. I hope life gets better for you so you don’t have to troll others,” one retorted.
Another added: “I’m sorry you feel this way, she was doing it to show what people not just herself are going through. As @benshephard said she has a voice which others don’t. Instead of being rude how about learn and be understanding.”
“Kate and her children have shown tonight the hell they are dealing with, have been and will continue to deal with but you get a ‘feeling’ and felt the need to tell one of her closest friends/work colleagues that she did this for her journalism career, shame on you,” a third commented.
A third fan penned: “Here’s the thing I find. Women gain more confidence the older they get (I’m more confident at 30 than I was at 20). A confident woman is attractive and exudes power – power over herself and her choices. Twerps don’t handle that well. You do you Julia.”
A fourth person replied: “How rude is that. My view is wear what you like, we are allowed to make choices, not be dictated to by so called style gurus.
“I have never seen you in a bad outfit and my wife always comments on what you are wearing in a very positive way.”
A fifth commented: “No, sorry, @JuliaBradbury I can’t tell you; even if I could, I should not. But then these days some folks feel a need to criticise publicly. I take comfort that you probably and rightly don’t care one iota about that tweet.”
