Talk about a shitstorm. In Florida, a Port Charlotte woman said that lightning destroyed her septic tank, and made the toilet in her house explode.
Marylou Ward, one of the property's co-owners, told local TV station WINK News that the one and only toilet in the Port Charlotte home was shattered into hundreds of pieces on Sunday.
Ward told a reporter she’ll have to get the toilet and septic system repaired, but she’s grateful neither she nor anyone else was injured. The bathroom toilet was shattered into hundreds of pieces.
“I’m just glad none of us were on the toilet,” Ward said. “That’s the main thing.”
From WINK News in Southwest Florida:
Ward and her husband are not only without a toilet, but the indoor plumbing is destroyed, along with the septic tank.
The odds were not in their favor as a lightning strike, in a chain reaction, led to the septic tank to toilet explosion.
“We come in here and the toilet was laying on the floor,” Ward said. “There’s all pieces everywhere. Pieces everywhere.”
Their plumber said the lightning hit the methane gases from fecal matter built up in the pipes. Ward said she thought the house was on fire.
“We smelled smoke and I looked outside.” Ward said. “It was the smoke from the septic tank that was coming.”
