Kisii - A dormitory at Eronge SDA Boarding Primary School in Nyamira was reduced to ashes after lightning struck the school Wednesday night.

The lightning struck the dormitory at around 7pm as the students prayed at the school chapel.

The school head said no one was injured in the incident, Daily Nation reports, but property worth millions of shillings was lost including the students’ belongings.

Such incidents are very popular in the region, with many people losing their lives in Kisii after lightning struck several places.

The latest such incident was reported at a funeral last year, with County governments being asked to install lightning arresters in learning institutions to prevent such deaths in future.
