Lightning destroyed a brick chimney at the rear of the Trinity United Church in Charlottetown. Brick chips flew as far away as Grafton St, over a block away. Neighbouring homes were bombarded with flying bricks, cars were battered and transformers and power lines were burnt to a crisp shutting down the power in the area. People living within a kilometer heard the louds bursts of thunder and thought that their immediate area had been hit.
