It was a combination. Most of the junction boxes were ok, but a few had connections burned or melted. It took out TV, Rice Cooker, Convection Microwave control board, coffee maker, two incandescent fixture ballasts, ATS, EMS, and an electric heater. We have had to run new wiring from the ATS to the Load Center (just the ground wire). We developed the "hot skin" issue which was particularly hard to find. And as a bonus, we still keep finding new things.

Nothing caught fire, nobody got hurt. But, my insurance company divorced me.

They are all such poor losers! It's not as if it was your fault you got struck by lightening.

Wow! I hope the insurance helped you at least.

Does the volt meter rapidly fluctuate when that starts failing or just draw an insane amount and start up?
