I can vouch for the truth in that.
When I was in grade school in the '60s, we were used to thunder-and-lightening storms. (I lived in Oneida, New York then.)
One evening we were in the kitchen when a storm came. Mom said get in the middle of the room and do not touch the sink (stainless steel) or counter (Formica with a stainless steel edge trim). We watched the storm through the window when lightning struck the Plum tree behind the garage; a separate building 50 feet from the main house, and split the tree in half.
