BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — A lightning strike in Argentina has killed at least three people and injured 22 in a coastal community.

The Telam state news agency says the lightning bolt struck Thursday afternoon in Villa Gesell, a town 320 kilometers (200 miles) east of the capital of Buenos Aires.

The 16 adults and six children injured were taken to a local hospital. Officials say two women suffered serious injuries.

Argentina's National Weather Service says the lightning was caused by a sudden storm with "a great movement of ascending air and water and lots of electrical activity."
