By Aaron Humes: Weather conditions are currently rainy as a tropical wave exits the country.
In Hattieville earlier this morning, a young woman was apparently struck by lightning as she held her child in a chair inside her home.
The child does not appear to be hurt but the woman was taken to hospital in Belize City for medical treatment, having sustained a burn to a portion of her body.
We are following the story and will have more details as they become available.
