Languedoc Living offices struck by lightning

LanguedocLiving, Nov 5

On Saturday night, the storms in the Haut Languedoc were much more severe than expected. As the rain lashed down during the day, the worst of the storm hit at around 5pm.

The satellite dish used by Languedoc Living was hit by lightning (the photo is a stock photo, not the actual event), and the very expensive router was fried, despite heavyweight blockers to stop the surge.

No one was hurt, but it was quite a surprise to hear the big explosion.

All being well, we will be back to normal on Tuesday morning, but until then the only news today is from our sports editor Reg Gratton, who somehow manages to get the sports news to you every week, come long distance travel, hell or high water. Let’s hear it for Reg!
