We had a wicked thunderstorm last night! First all the power went out totally then a minute later lights came on but were really dim. My fan in my room would spin barely on high. Micro would not work but the display was lit, coffee maker wouldn't turn on, all 3 tv's wouldn't turn on but I have a little 13 inch tube tv that stayed on but the picture was pulsing every 10 seconds or so.

So i got my DMM out and read 55 volts on different outlets throughout the house including the one my tv was working on.

The surge bar out in the living room had the red surge light lit.


So did I get hit with a surge? Why 55 volts?
