July 22, 2012 - Lightning

A duplex residence was severely damaged when struck by a positive-polarity lightning bolt. Lightning struck the ground near an exterior Jacuzzi in a side yard, near the front corner of the structure. The lightning strike left a hold in the ground roughly 2 feet by 2 feet by 18 inches deep. A ground rod and wire was installed for the Jacuzzi but not attached. The charge followed the exterior power conduit to an exterior junction box, where the box's cover was blown free. Wires were charred, the conduit destroyed. The residence's washer/dryer electric supply was charred. The electric meter box exploded according to the responding fire unit, with wires charred and burned and all connections melted. In the front of the residence, wood was charred under metal screws securing the exterior soffit. Aluminum frames for glass jalaousie windows in the front of the residence were melted with windows knocked out. Light bulbs in various locations throughout the residence were blown, including the bedroom lamps and ceiling fixture, bathroom wall fixture, and kitchen ceiling light fixture. The bathroom mirror was shattered. The residence was declared unfit for occupation due to damage to the electrical system, although no fire resulted. Keys Energy Services replaced a blown fuse for a transformer serving the residence, and three other residences had tripped circuits but no permanent damage was reported. The struck residence was occupied by one female at the time of the strike, who was observed by rescue personnel to not have any injuries.
