Lightning damages Hernando home

This home on East Jefferson Loop in Hernando sustained roof and interior damage when it was struck by lightning and caught fire late Sunday night, part of a storm system that came through DeSoto County. There were no injuries as a result and the occupants escaped the home safely. Several homes in the county lost power during the course of the late night hours and close to four inches of rain fell.
