Lightning kills 17 goats at farm Regina

Rain is always welcome in the hot and dry //Kharas Region, but this natural phenomenon sometimes brings with it troubles and loss to farmers and residents alike.
A strong bout of the late rains of the current season caused one such farmer, Abraham Thomas, to loose a sizeable amount of his livestock at farm Regina, situated four kilometers outside Helmeringhausen in the Bethanie district.
Lightning killed 17 of Thomas' goats at around 17h00 on Thursday.
Thomas told Nampa that he recorded between 20 and 40 millimeters of rain on that day and it was during this downpour that his 17 goats were struck by the lightning.
He said one was a stud ram and 15 were in the last stages of their gestation period.
