HARRINGTON, Wash. - The storm that rolled through the Inland Northwest Tuesday night did more damage than just knock down trees and power lines, it also killed eight head of cattle.
A bull, three cows and four calves on Jim Goffman's pasture near Harrington were hit by lightning, killing them instantly.
Hoffman says he's been ranching for decades and has never seen anything like it.
"They were walking down the trail ... and they just fell like dominoes," he said.
The estimated loss is about $15,000 to $20,000.
