CAPE CORAL, Fla.- Lightning struck a concrete pole, leaving 426 customers without power in West Cape Coral.

Savona Parkway, Aqualinda Blvd., and Ida Baker High School are included in this outage. 

According to LCEC, new technology is expected to speed recovery efforts for half of the affected customers.

The power pole is located in a swampy area, so the total repair is expected to take some time.
