BLOOMFIELD, MO (KFVS) - Lightning did some damage at Bloomfield Veterans Cemetery.

Cemetery Director Ken Swearengin says lightning struck a 200 pound cornerstone a Sunday night.

This is not a headstone. It is a cornerstone made of Indiana limestone that marks a certain section of the cemetery.

Lightning also damaged a 6 inch water main at the cemetery.

It did about $4000 to $5000 worth of damage.
