PORT CHARLOTTE, FL – A septic tank was hit by lightning over the weekend, causing one ‘crappy’ situation.
According to WINK-TV, who interviewed the homeowners, lightning hit methane gases from fecal matter built up in the pipes, causing the toilet bowl to explode. The Ward family said the explosion caused their master bedroom window to shatter, along with broken pieces of yard decorations across the property and in the street.
The plumber tells the Ward family that the indoor plumbing was also destroyed, along with the septic tank.
Thankfully, there were no injuries.
