The weather has been rather lively over the Bank Holiday weekend so far - but will the thunderstorms continue throughout the week?
A neighbour heard a massive bang after the house was struck in the early hours of the morning.
Around 15,000 lightning strikes were recorded in just four hours, BBC Weather said.
Thousands of residents are moved to shelters as high winds and rain pummel the region.
The Atlantic hurricane season doesn't officially start until June 1st, but there's a chance a storm could form this weekend in the Gulf of Mexico.
