KENAI — A Kenai building was struck by lightning late Friday afternoon during a storm that passed over the Central Kenai Peninsula.
Such lightning strikes are usually uncommon on the peninsula, reported the Peninsula Clarion.
Property manager Cari Friendshuh said lightning touched down outside the Kenai Peninsula Tourism Marketing Council and arced over it.
“I’ve never seen lightning strike so closely in my life,” she said. “It really made a really, really, loud noise when it did.”
