Lightening hit our house! Loud pop occured with a bright flash in our living room. It scared me so bad I threw my laptop on the floor, leaped over the coffee table and ran out of the room. Then I came back in the room to investigate. We lost our big screen TV!! Our 52 inch is no longer! Thankfully my laptop did not get damaged when I threw it on the floor. I still want to cry!! How are we going to be able to replace it???

Will homeowners maybe cover it since it was weather related?

Homeowners insurance would cover it but we bought the TV for about $1200, our deductible is $1000. Doesnt really help much!

And glad you are ok by the way! My sister's boss had lightening hit his house once and it actually shot through one of his rooms and left a hole in the wall. Better your tv than you!

so sorry you lost your stuff I hate when things get fried. on the bright side everyone is ok. maybe just pick up a cheap tv for now. mine was recovered from a dumpster lol.

my parents place got struck all the time when i was little we lost tvs and computers on several occasions even with surge protectors. I still unplug my electronics when a storm comes through I wont even take baths if there is lightning around. i know its supposed to be a wives tale but surge protectors are supposed to save your TV to. Not to be scary just been there hated that and im afraid of storms still is the point.

Glad you're okay!

Was your TV by any chance plugged into a surge protector? If so, contact the surge protector manufacturer. Many of them offer lifetime guarantees that cover the electronics plugged into them (even up to $100,000 worth for some companies).
