A lightning strike in Ethiopia’s Amhara regional state, located in the northern part of the country, has killed a family of three, an Ethiopian official said on Wednesday.

Dejen Wodage, Chief Police Inspector of Waghimera zone in Amhara regional state, said a lightning strike on a residential house on Monday evening left a father and his two children dead, reported state media outlet Ethiopia News Agency.

Wodage said a four-year-old child, who was badly injured in the lightning, is currently being treated in a nearby medical facility.

Ethiopia is in the midst of a rainy season, which started in July, and is expected to last until early October.

The season occasionally causes landslides and lightning strikes in some parts of the East African country.
