Yesterday we had a brutal rain and wind storm that knocked out power in Lake Worth even causing a fire near the 1800 block of North D Street. Power lines literally fell on nearby homes. Here in my community, lighting struck a transformer according to LW Utilities and many of our residents had no power for about four hours. Winds were so strong that it blew a palm branch up to the 2nd level of our building.
The Utility company came last night to make the repairs and I was told not to get too close in case the transformer blew?! He was here for about 1/2 hour.
