SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Two homes in the same neighborhood were damaged by a lightning strike Sunday night, according to Tim Kelley with the City of Suffolk. It happened at 7:49 p.m. in the 100 block of Bennetts Creek Landing.
Lightning apparently hit a pine tree, shooting over to one of the home's gutters, according to Kelley. The lightning strike did not spark a fire, but it did cause an estimated $5,000 to $10,000 worth of damage.
Nearby, another home's sprinkler system was damaged from the same lightning strike.
Power was out in that neighborhood temporarily, and it has since been restored. No one was hurt.
