Lightning struck homes on Monday during the severe thunderstorms that passed through the region.
In Haverhill a home was hit and ignited a fire. The fire was quickly put out. No injuries were reported.
In Waltham a woman was affected by a strike to her home. She was checked out by paramedics and said she was doing fine.
In Lynn a bolt zapped the upper floor of multi-family home. The force was so strong it punched a hole in the building and started a fire.
Meanwhile in Connecticut seven golfers were hit by lightning on the Lake Isles Golf Course. All seven were fine after being treated.
Hey guys here’s a helpful hint: if there is lightning and you’re standing in the middle of a wide open field-like a golf course-with a bag of metal poles on your back, GET OFF THE COURSE!
