Daily Mail (09/Jun/1910) - Lightning Vagaries

The following is a transcription of a historic newspaper article and may contain occasional errors.


A house and a draper's shop, occupied by a man named Armitage at Lindley, near Huddersfield, were struck by lightning, which, having crashed the chimney through the roof of the attic, wrenched doors from their hinges. The current passed into a bedroom where two people were asleep. They were awakened by the fireplace being hurled into the room. Furniture in other rooms was damaged. A Wesleyan chapel was flooded to a depth of eight feet, carrying with it doors and windows. A house was struck by lightning at Mold Green, and several houses were struck at Bradford.
