Altoona (WQOW) - They are calling it a direct lightning strike, and the photo speaks for itself.
The City of Altoona posted a picture of the box that controls the stoplights near Woodman's on River Prairie in Altoona. City leaders believe it was from a direct lightning strike.
Power was restored, but the signal is flashing a red light.
They do not know the exact extent of the damage, and won't until a specialist can examine it.
