WEATHER REPORT
Lightning kills eight church goers in Malawi

Blantyre, Malawi (AFP) Dec 28, 2013


A lightning strike killed eight worshippers including a child at a church in Malawi's capital Lilongwe on Saturday, a health ministry official said.

"The worshippers were having an extended session of Saturday prayers when lightning struck their church at around 4.30pm," Charles Mwansambo, chief of health services in the ministry of health, told AFP.

He said the eight victims -- included seven adults and one child -- had "arrived already dead" at Kamuzu Central hospital from the Seventh Day Adventist Church.

Mwansambo said one person was at the intensive care unit, while 40 others were being "observed" and treated as outpatients.

"It's a disaster... it was a natural phenomenon," Mwansambo said.

Lightning has killed three other people in separate incidents since the start of the rainy season last month, according to media reports.
