Dramatic lightning was seen across the country last night – but it has caused devastation in some homes. This amazing image was captured in the East Midlands
A number of houses have been destroyed by lightning during devastating storms across the country.

Homes in Merseyside, Birmingham and Sheffield have been pictured up in smoke after they were struck by huge forks of electricity yesterday night.

Fire brigades across the UK had to scramble to the scenes of the fires to get them under control and ensure those inside were safe.

Emergency services were called to one home in Barnston Road, the Wirral, shortly before 8pm last night when Merseyside was being battered by heavy rain, thunder and lightning.

It is believed a fork of lightning hit the house causing the fire, but it is not yet clear whether anyone was inside at the time.

Is it the middle of June or the middle of January? That's the question some residents in parts of Idaho and Montana may have been asking this week as their communities were transformed into a winter wonderland.

With the summer solstice just days away, Old Man Winter ruffled some feathers across the northern Rockies by delivering a large helping of snow, with totals surpassing a foot across the highest elevations from Tuesday into Wednesday.

The Blaine County Sheriff's Office in Idaho said on Facebook that it was issuing a "felony warrant for Mother Nature for Illegal Dumping." A storm total of about 10 inches of snow was measured north of Galena Summit while south of the summit, a total of 6 inches was measured. The sheriff's office also responded to several stuck vehicles in the area.


Southeastern Turkey's Hakkari still gripped with remaining winter snow in June - 7 meters deep in places

A snowplow in Yüksekova, Turkey, 18 June, 2020.
Hakkari, known for its rough weather, is gripped with heavy snow even though summer has set in. Snowfall bears down particularly in rural areas of this southeastern Turkish province.

In the Yüksekova district, crews have been working to clear snow-covered roads. Snowplows pierce through 3 meters (9.8 feet) of snow in areas with high altitudes. For the past 20 days, crews have worked to reopen roads leading to military bases in the Göllerbaşı region, some 40 kilometers (24.9 miles) from central Yüksekova.

A 16-kilometer road has been largely cleared so far while the snow depth reached 7 meters in some areas. Officials say they expect the road to be cleared fully in about two weeks.
