It was very hectic at the Deschutes County 911 Center during yesterday's big storm as lightning strikes sparked fires, and knocked out power. The 911 computer system was even down for a while. If we get another big storm, Shawn Pray, a dispatcher has some advice for people calling 911 to help out. "We had several reports given the current storm, we'd appreciate a specific location and any close structures to any fires that resulted from the lightning strikes, let fire department's know, that would be greatly appreciated.”  At last report there were about 5400 lightning strikes from the storm.
