Lightning strikes thrice


Lightning and high wind from thunderstorms caused problems around the area yesterday, the Globe reports today, including at least three lightning strikes in Waltham.

A four-story apartment building on Ridge Lane was struck, causing about $30,000 in damage to the first, second, and third floors. On Seminole Avenue, lightning struck the chimney of a single-family home, and the chimney was ``blown to bits," said Waltham Deputy Fire Chief Michael Quinn.
