Marylou Ward, a co-owner of the home, says the sound was incredibly loud.
The Sunday morning blast shattered the bathroom toilet into hundreds of pieces.
“It used to be our toilet, but we have nothing now,” Ward said.
Their plumber said the lightning hit the methane gases from fecal matter built up in the pipes. Ward said she thought the house was on fire.
More than 24 hours later, there are still visible damages inside and outside of their Charlotte home.
The explosion caused their master bedroom window to shatter and the Ward family are still finding pieces of broken yard decorations across the property.
“I’m just glad none of us were on the toilet,” Ward said.
