LEE COUNTY, Fla.- The Lee County School Board has agreed to purchase a new outdoor alert system that includes lightning detection.
The service would district officials monitor the weather at nine high schools. It would also upgrade the system at four other high schools.
Board members added the item to their meeting agenda after 11-year old Jesse Watlington was struck by a bolt of lighning before football practice last week. He died from his injuries on Sunday at a Tampa hospital.
