(Shippensburg) -- A lightning strike has delayed the scheduled start of classes at a midstate high school by a couple of days.

The Shippensburg Area Senior High School in Cumberland County was struck by lightning, which has affected electricity within the building.

The district didn't say on its website when the strike occurred.

The building was slated to open Thursday, but that has now been pushed back to August 21.

The ninth grade orientation and open house originally scheduled tomorrow will be held Thursday.

Students attending the Career Tech School will also begin classes August 21.

All other buildings will open on time Thursday.
