By BBN Staff: Shortly after midday today, a thunderstorm hit Western Belize and was accompanied by lightning and strong winds.
A cow and a calf belonging to Anton Dueck of Spanish Lookout were under a tree when lightning hit the tree and both animals were killed.
Joe Friesen, who is a friend of Dueck and is a leading cattle trader in the area, told BBN that the total value of the 2 animals is $2000.
He also shared with us that a nearby building in Spanish Lookout was also struck by lightning and caught fire.
Residents moved swiftly and managed to contain the fire.
The building was only partially destroyed.
