Chadron Water Restrictions Lifted After Lightning Strike
By Emily Roehler, Weekend Meteorologist - bio | email
Water restrictions have been lifted in
Chadron following a freak lightning strike.
The bolt of lightning disabled water
system computers and caused damage to electronic power supply equipment which
automatically controls the water supply system. Water had to be manually run
through the system, which took much longer.
Residents no longer have to delay lawn
watering or cars washing.
