The line of thunderstorms that rolled through our area on Tuesday evening packed quite a powerful punch. Three people were struck by lightning, two in Flushing Meadows Park and one in Jamaica.
The two people who were struck in the park were playing soccer. When it starts to thunder and lightning, it is time to get to a safe place immediately.
Summertime storms can be very powerful, and we still have the remainder of August and part of September to get through.
