Default Rigger's diary - lightning

Here's what happenned yesterday. Lightning hit the end of the roof of a

of flats. The milk lady was stood just below and she was knocked against a

by the pressure wave, breaking several bottles. The building has a

roof with a loft space, Later we found the loft was brightly lit thanks to

hole in the roof. The end of the roof apex near the gable had disappeared,

about a dozen tiles were smashed or missing. The woodwork in that area was
charred. In the flat immediately below, all the nails in the ceiling were
protruding about 10mm, suggesting that the plaster board had had been

down. The TV system in that block serves 14 flats. Amongst these there

four dead TV sets and one dead VCR. One flat at the opposite end to the

had no mains power at the incoming supply.

Did you find any sign of dead loganberries in the loft?
