    A man has been struck by lightning while working on a roof in Houston.

    Harris County sheriff's officials say storm clouds rolled into the area about 9 a.m. Sunday morning.

    They say workers were clearing materials off the roof when the man was struck.

    Authorities say his co-workers brought him to the ground and performed CPR before Harris County deputies and an ambulance arrived.

    The 30-year-old man was taken to the hospital, where his condition is not known.

    The man's name was not immediately released.
