Default lightning strike damage

Hmmmm as I understood it, the VM cabinets are on the pavements, You'd
think teh lighting strike would be more likely to strike a TV aerial or
Satellite dish than a VM roadside cabinet?

No, not the case. I've seen examples where the lightning has hit the
road and made a crater, and the surrounding houses have EMP damage
burnt cables etc but no signs of an actual strike.

I've also seen burnt out electrics on a boat on the Broads when the
lightning had struck the water nearby.
