|Damaged left tower|
Needless to say the non denominational group plans on installing a lightning arrestor system after this incident which is actually the 2nd time the church was hit after it happened seems couple old parishioners told them the church was hit once before.
Needless to say you have to ask why the original owners of the church did not install the lightning rods in first place as many churches have them. But you would be surprised just how many do not have them as well.
Lightning can and will hit any time and anywhere it pleases. The rule of the highest structure getting hit is an old wives tale . This church sits lower than rest of the hill its on and the original church goers probably felt safe they would never get hit again how wrong they where but you know how church committees work if you have ever been on one
Ironically a Catholic Church about a mile away was hit a week later by lighting which caused damage to its organ.
