Muskego/West Allis -- "I felt a zap go down my arm."
Becky skiff's phone call was cut short Saturday afternoon.
"All of a sudden the whole house lit up like a white light, not sunlight, like a white light, and shook," Skiff said.
Lightning hit the backyard of her Muskego home. It ripped up this buried cable and traveled the base of their home. It left scorch marks on the house.
"I don't even know," Skiff said. "I'm still kind of in shock. I can't believe, looking at it. If you could have been there feeling it, it was just really amazing how much the whole house shook. It felt like a bomb hit."
Skiff says the phone flew out of her hand.
"The phone flew across the room."
She was talking on a cordless phone when she felt the shock.
"I still do feel a little tingling but I'm fine. They took my vitals, everything's fine."
Randy Price was trying to sleep when it hit.
"I see the big bright light and a crack," Price recalls. "I didn't hear any thunder. I jumped up, my cat jumped up right next to me. I came outside and looked and saw the damage. It was pretty good."
In West Allis, fire crews were quick to put out an attic fire on Manor Park Drive.
"The storm blew a tree branch down on an electrical line," West Allis Fire Captain Jay Scharfenberg said. "That electrical supply line fell on the roof and started a fire in the attic."
No one was hurt in the fire and there was very little damage.
"I felt very fortunate that we're okay," Price said.
