NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. -- A lightning strike killed a man and badly damaged a church in New York City. The New York City Fire Department says they believe lightning hit the steeple of a church in Brooklyn. They say the strike caused scaffolding that was surrounding the building to collapse and hit a man who was walking by.
Dozens of families also remain homeless after a lightning strike hit their apartment building.
It took more than 200 firefighters three and a half hours to get the fire under control.
