    On This Date in Iowa Weather History (courtesy of the NWS): 1902: A resident of Creston was struck by lightning twice during the same storm and lived. He was walking home during the onset of a thunderstorm, struck by lightning, and rendered unconscious. He was soon awakened by the ensuing heavy rainfall and resumed his journey home at a slower pace, partially paralyzed from the initial shock. Just as he reached the doorstep of his residence he was struck by a second lightning bolt and once again rendered unconscious. He miraculously survived the experience although his hair and eyebrows were singed and some exposed portions of his skin were blackened.
