COOS BAY, Ore. — On the Southern Oregon coast, last weekend’s winter storm included lightning strikes that damaged two houses.

The World newspaper reported that the police and fire departments in North Bend got calls about five different lightning strikes Saturday afternoon. At one house, a screen door and an upstairs window were blown out. At another, wallboard was scorched.

Though there were strong winds, less than a quarter inch of rain was recorded locally.
