From 13 ABC:
A mural honoring George Floyd erected at Summit and Lagrange in Toledo has collapsed. According to Toledo Police, witnesses say it was destroyed by a lightning strike. 13abc’s Doppler Radar did show a lightning strike in that block at about 4:30 PM this afternoon.
[…] The mural was painted nearly one year to the date of its collapse in July 2020.
Sounds like an omen.
