Water and fire will give the earth's globe convulsions and terrible earthquakes which will swallow up mountains, cities, etc...Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
Bujumbura (Burundi) (AFP) - Lightning in Burundi killed seven high school students and wounded 51 others when it struck a classroom where they were sheltering from a ferocious storm, officials said Saturday.
"This was an exceptional disaster that hit not only our town, but also other areas of the country, when we should be in the dry season," said Prudence Kabura, a local government official in Nyanza-Lac, some 150 kilometres (90 miles) south of the capital Bujumbura, of the storm on Friday.
As many as 500 houses were also destroyed by the heavy rains, he added.
The tragedy follows a series of fatal lightning strikes in recent days.
Last week lightning killed four people and wounded nine others as they sheltered inside a small church in eastern Burundi, local official Egide Ndikuriyo said.
The following day, two people guarding a herd of cows were also struck by lightning, while houses and crops were damaged by the heavy rains, Ndikuriyo added, noting the unseasonal nature of the storms. Yahoo News

"I protest highly against a different text, which people may dare publish after my death. I protest once more against the very false statements of all those who dare say and write First that I embroidered the Secret; second, against those who state that the Queen Mother did not say to transmit the Secret to all her people."
