IDAHO FALLS — Dozens of geese plummeted from the sky during a severe hail and thunderstorm Saturday evening.

Witnesses tell EastIdahoNews.com the birds suddenly fell into a parking lot near Yellowstone Highway and Lincoln Road in Idaho Falls around 7 p.m. It’s likely they were struck by lightning.
