HOUMA, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Shoppers at a grocery store got a shock themselves when a woman was apparently struck by lightning in the checkout line.

Houma Fire District Chief Joe Moupon says the woman, whose name was not released but is believed to be OK, was paying for her items about 2:13 p.m. Monday when a flash of lightning during a rain storm hit her inside the store.

The woman was alert as she was quickly taken to the hospital.

A foot-wide blackened tile by a register marked the strike.

The business remained open after the incident.
