Lightning creates beautiful, but dangerous, show in the sky Monday


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Central Alabama had quite the show Monday night. Lightning lit up the night skies for several hours. WIAT 42 managed to capture a few minutes of the show while checking for any damage across the area.

Alabama wasn’t the only state that saw a big lightning show. In Mississippi several Panola County Dispatch employees were sent to the hospital after their building was struck by lightning. One employee was burned.

The workers are expected to be okay but that’s not the case for the equipment. Up to $10,000 of new technology was damaged.

This is the second time the building has been struck by lightning, but employees are grateful and say it could have been worse.
