Two houses were partially destroyed this morning in Hampshire, England, with lightning striking amid storms in the region, which is expected to continue this weekend.
A 70-year-old woman was rescued unharmed at the scene, according to the British newspaper The Guardian. The roofs of both properties were consumed by the fire started by lightning.
“There was this big noise – it obviously came from lightning. I think it raised the whole street. When I looked outside, I saw that the roofs of the row houses were completely on fire, and it was completely destroyed,” said a neighbor, Guardian Barry Austen, 79, of both apartments. Explains that they are attached by a wall.
