Lightning strikes home on Bald Head Island

Sunday, August 12th, 2012

Bald Head Island, NC (WWAY) – A community is in shock after lightning strikes a home and causes it to catch fire.

Early Sunday morning lightning struck a home on 27 Mourning Warbler Court on Bald Head Island causing the third floor of the home to catch fire.

“You could see the lightning just crashing down and the thunder was booming at exactly the same time and it was hitting so hard that my whole house was shaking” said Connie Bertram.

There were renters in the house at the time of the strike and they were able to escape the home without injury.

This is the second home on Mourning Warbler Court to be struck by lightning. In April a home at 32 Mourning Warbler Court burnt to the ground after being struck.

“Lightning is fair game anytime of the year here” said Stephen Keebler of the National Weather Service. “Lightning loves heat and humidity and April through essentially September we have plenty of both.”
