Lightning strike damages two homes
SUFFOLK-- Two homes were damaged in Suffolk due to a lightning strike Sunday.
Officials say lightning hit a pine tree in the 100 block of Bennetts Creek Landing and "shot over to the gutters of the home with several entry points" around 8 p.m.
Although there was no fire from the strike, an estimated $5,000 to $10,000 in damage was done to the exterior, along with electronics inside the home.
A neighboring home had damage to a sprinkler system from the same lightning strike.
No injuries were reported.
Power was temporarily off in the neighborhood but has been restored.
