A boy was injured in a lightning strike in Larksville on Wednesday as a cluster of thunderstorms moved through the region.

A Luzerne County 911 supervisor said there were three reports of people injured in lightning strikes received on Wednesday — one near the Dana Street Elementary School in Forty Fort, one on Kidder Street in Wilkes-Barre and one at 135 E. Luzerne St., Larksville.

The supervisor said the reports from Forty Fort and Wilkes-Barre were signed off, which means no one was transported to a hospital.

However, the juvenile injured in Larksville was transported to a hospital for treatment, the supervisor said. That report was received just after 4:30 p.m.

The National Weather Service in Binghamton reported that more thunderstorms with localized heavy rain are likely Thursday.
