It’s not everyday your house gets struck by lightning. It’s even more rare that your neighbor’s house gets struck at the same time. Earlier this week, that very thing happened multiplied by two.
When a strong storm system moved through the state of North Carolina on Monday, reports of intense lightning were submitted all across the state. In one particular area, the lightning was so bad that a house was struck in a neighborhood, and then another was struck.
Shortly after that, two more homes were struck by lightning in the same area. In total, four homes all within one mile of each other were all directly struck by lightning. What city in North Carolina did the bizarre quadruple strikes take place and what kind of damage did it cause?
