For about 10 seconds the evening of Aug. 25, Allen County 911 dispatch center was off line.

“Lightning hit at 7:28 and the whole building went black, except for (battery powered) emergency exit lights,” said Angie Murphy, dispatch director, in an assessment she gave county commissioners Tuesday morning.

A large and often violent storm moved through Allen County that evening.
