On Friday 15th we had 30 FTTC NCDs "fried"
in a single 1km2 area due to an electrical storm.
No other devices were impacted in the affected households and
damage occurred irrespective of whether NCDs were plugged to
surge protectors or not.

It seems unlikely that lightning hit lead-ins for the
affected services.

The area has mainly aerial lead-in delivery.

Induced power spike?
