COLUMBUS, Ind. — Two months after lightning directly hit the Bartholomew County E911 Emergency Management Center tower, the subsequent damage is still not completely fixed. But funds have been approved to make permanent repairs.

The early morning lightning strike on Saturday, July 1, caused extensive damage to electronic equipment at 131 S. Cherry St., as well as quite a bit of panic among county officials and first responders, center director Todd Noblitt said.
