Longview Church suffers structural damage from storm

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Damage was done to a Longview church on Thursday night, taking down a huge section of the structure.

It was around 8 pm that church members believe a lightning strike hit the top of the Greggton United Methodist Church in the 1100 block of Pine Tree Road.  

The strike toppled a 50 foot wall of brick on the side of the main sanctuary. Tons of brick littered the church lawn. Fortunately no one was at the site at the time.

Members say the sanctuary and buildings did not suffer any serious structural damage.
