Wrentham Police Department is reporting a woman was hit by lightning. She was out walking her dog on Forest Grove Ave during the storm that rolled through Wrentham in the morning. Both Wrentham Police and Fire responded. She was talking on scene and was transported to a local hospital.
The force of the lightning strike was felt throughout the area. Cassandra Halloran said it rattled her home on a neighboring street. "I'm on Walnut and that shook my house," she says. "I knew it was close. I was hoping it wasn't Michael's deli again."
Halloran added, "Hope [the woman] and the dog are OK."
Four years ago, the building for Michael's Deli, not far from Forest Grove, was struck by lightning causing a fire that closed the eatry down for five months. (See Michael's Deli is Back).
At this time Wrentham Police are not releasing any additional details about the incident.
