Lightning from yesterday's batch of wild storms across the Houston area is being blamed for a fire at a home in Sugar Land. It's believed a lightning bolt struck the chimney of the 3-story home yesterday. Luckily, the fire didn't spread to the house, which was under construction at the time. Workers inside the house were not hurt.

In northeast Houston, storms are blamed for knocking down part of a facade at a strip center. Witnesses say the facade came down in a split second, hitting several cars.

One of the vehicles apparently had people sitting inside. Despite cracked windshields and crushed hoods, no one was injured.

Heavy rain also pounded the Pasadena and southeast Houston area which lead to some street flooding.

There is more rain on the way today with possible flooding, so stay with Eyewitness News and abc13.com for the latest weather updates.
