Lightning storm knocks out power
Lightning strikes early Wednesday evening knocked out power for about 90 minutes. Local residents called the afternoon thunder and lightning storm an unusual one for the closeness of strikes to downtown Forks. There were reports of flames coming from a transformers and heavy rattling of glass and walls.
A home on the Quillayute Prairie caught fire and was heavily damaged at about the time of the blackout, reportedly from a chimney fire unrelated to the lightning storm.
