Well that certainly counts as unique.

LIGHTNING STRIKE HITS TOILET: Okmulgee fire crews say they had a bizarre lightning strike call at the Oxford Apartments overnight. They say the lightning came through the vent in the roof and struck the toilet, shattering it.

Nobody lives in that unit, but crews tell me they were told it was supposed to be rented out this morning. They say they’ve never seen a call like this one!

Glad no one was there. It would've been tragic (and possibly embarrassing).

It shoulda been an easy call for the firefighters to deal with, mostly just a safety inspection. Unfortunately the people who were gonna move in would have to wait a tad, hopefully they weren't in a major rush. This sounds like a Farmers Home Insurance commercial. "Strange forces at work, only if your referring to weather & we covered it. Talk to Farmers, we know a thing or two because we've seen a thing or two" :lol:

I've had so many problems with the toilet in my apartment I'm wondering if that will be the next thing. 8O
