Two People Killed by Lightning at Houston Soccer Field

A lightning strike from a fast-developing storm in Houston yesterday afternoon killed two people at La Escondida Soccer Park located in North Houston.  According to reports, about 200 people and players were gathered at the field and were in the process of postponing games when the deadly strike occurred.  The bolt actually hit a tall pine tree and then radiated downward to the ground killing two men and injuring a third.

Here are some life saving facts to know about lightning:

  • lightning can strike miles away from the ‘worst part’ of a storm.  If you can hear thunder in the distance, the next lightning strike could be very near you.
  • Seek cover in a house or car, never stand under a tree, awning, or other temporary shelter.
  • Always know the forecast before going to an outdoor event, and, if possible, keep up with weather and radar updates on your phone.
