Police are investigating a storm-related death in Port Orange, sources say.

Sources tell News 13 a roofer, 25-year-old Steven Gang of Orange City, was struck by lightning at a home on Arash Circle around 4:28 p.m.

StormTracker 13 radar showed stormy weather over Port Orange around 4:30 p.m. before the lightning strike.

“It was about over, I would say, it was just barely sprinkling or I wouldn’t have went to the trash can," said neighbor Kim Crosslin. "It was just barely sprinkling and it was just a loud thunder boom, and I seen the light and I didn’t hear anymore lightning after that."


Neighbors several homes away say they could feel the ground shaking immediately after the lighting strike.

“I thought lightning was going to strike me there for a second,” Crosslin said.

The Port Orange Police Department is investigating what happened, calling it a possible storm-related death until the Volusia County Medical Examiner’s Office does an autopsy, possibly as early as Monday.

“I think it’s a tragedy and I hate that it happened and I really feel bad for the family," Crosslin said.
