Lightning strikes near Lorain High School Annex Tuesday

A lightning strike near the Lorain High School Annex, 2321 Fairless Dr., — formerly SouthviewMiddle School — occurred around 7:50 a.m. Tuesday, according to a Lorain Schools news release.

The building was evacuated with students moved about a half-mile to the temporary Lorain High School, 2270 E. 42nd St., — formerly Southview High School.

Due to the rain, some students who were wet were allowed to go home to change and buses were provided to students who normally are bussed to school. The annex re-opened around 9 a.m.
