Old Waynesboro Rd / Brown Rd.

area had a quick outage / hit

At around 2:06am /2:07am
All of the security lights came on, the security cameras flickered for a second as the UPS units in the house kicked in and ran for just over a minute.

Reviewing the security video showed no major Lighting Flash in the immediate area. Just a lot of heavy rain and some wind.
