Lightning Strikes Home in Mattapoisett

A brief yet violent storm moved through the area this afternoon creating large puddles and damaging at least one home. Just after 4pm the Mattapoisett Fire Department was called to Bridal Path for a home that was struck. The homeowners reported they also smelt smoke in the house. After the initial investigation the Fire Department reported that a tree in the yard had been struck and the charge had traveled into the home though a water line but there was no fire found. The building inspector and electrical inspector were also called to the scene to check the safety of the home.

The US Weather Service is forecasting unsettled weather with possible intermittent rain and thunder showers for the next few days for our area.
