Three People Struck by Lightning in New Hampshire


July 19, 2007

Concord, NH -A series of Servere thundestorms blew over New Hampshire on Sunday, with winds strong enough to down powerlines and blow down trees on top of homes. The storms caused thousands to be without power.

Three people were struck by lightning while picking raspberries at Ridge Runner's Farm in New Durham. Elizabeth and Link Moser were treated and released from Frisbie Memorial Hospital. Link Moser suffered minor burns to his arms and feet. His wife Elizabeth, who is pregnant, received a precautionary checkup. An unidentified third person, who reported tingling in her hands, did not seek treatment.

Police said the lightning strike shattered lumber off two poles and traveled along a wire supporting the raspberry plants. Eddie Miles, co-owner of Ridge Runner's Farm said it was not raining at the time of the strike.

Miles said that the Mosers returned to his farm which is located on Ridge Road to the south of Lake Winnipesaukee, after being released from the hospital to say they were OK - and to talk about the weather
