Single lightning strike damages three homes

A single lightning strike from a thunderstorm damaged three homes in Boyle county Thursday night.

The homes are located on Lebanon Road.

The lightning bolt left a trench a foot wide and, in some places, a foot deep.

After that, it traveled through a phone line and caused damage to three homes.

The bolt busted up a concrete driveway outside one home.

It also damaged phone and water lines.

Another home also had a phone jack busted off and melted carpet.

Fortunately, no one was hurt during the storm.
