At 1:03pm TVF&R firefighters were called to a report of a lightning strike at a residential home in West Linn near the cross streets of Churchill Downs Drive & Clubhouse Drive. The caller initially thought the home had been struck and was possibly on fire. After arrival crews determined a large tree near the home was struck by lightning and no fire was present.
A shock wave from the lightning strike, however, was strong enough to blow out several windows in the residence, in addition to knocking out power to a couple homes.
No injuries were reported.
