Warren Peak Tower Hit By Lightning Warren Peak-lookout tower $ miles north of Sundance, in the Bearlodge was hit by lightning Friday, August 13, which tore off a section of window shutter and burned up the radio antenna located just tbelow. Albert Haynes of Spearfish, who was on duty in the tower at the time, received no shock or injury. Forest Service lookout towers are one of the safest places in the world during an electric storm because they are grounded: a net- work of heavy copper wire is laid from the top out each of the four corners and buried into the ground. Under the earth more copper wire connects these four lead-in wires, and at the roof of the tower, wires circle the building so that electricity is not allowed to collect in or around the tower. What actually happens is that instead of electrical charge building up as it normally does, invitin~g sudden discharges from clouds overhead to str~a~ down and effect a union, electricity "lea, ks off" through the wires around the structure, and there is never anything to attract lightning from above. Tb, erefore the lookout is a giant lightning rod. It is believed what occurred Friday is that a .bolt of lightning bounced off the antenna on top the tower, striking the wooden shutter.
