Lightning struck a house in the Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle on Friday, scattering shingles and roofing for 100 yards in every direction.
Myron Hauge is still trying to make sense of what happened to his house.
"I thought maybe a little bit of fire, maybe a little bit of charring, but there is absolutely none. It just looks like a bomb went off," he said.
Myron, his wife and his twin 11-year-olds spent Friday fishing near Vashon Island. When the family returned home, his son, Zane, was the first to notice.
Zane said, "Mom, I think our house might have got struck by lightning."
The weather had been nice during their fishing trip, but once back in their Magnolia neighborhood, friends filled them in on the storm they missed.
“It sounded like armagedon; they could not believe there was that much thunder and lightning,” said Hauge.
And this homeowner, who is also a firefighter, could not believe the damage to his place
“It’s absolutely crazy, I've never seen anything like it,” he said.
There are three holes in the house, one in the roof and two on the side. Pieces of wood can be found scattered on the lawn, and in a tree.
There were two transformers within 200 feet of the house. Both had to be replaced.
