An American woman says she got duct tape stuck in her attic after an electrical storm.
In this June 26, 2020, photo, an American woman is seen inspecting her attic to remove duct tape.
The woman said she was out of the attic at about 6:30 a.m. when she heard a loud bang and saw duct tape sticking to a window.
She said the duct tape was on the window ledge, and that when she removed it she discovered the duct was still there.
“I didn’t want to put it back in the attic because I had no idea where to put the duct,” she said.
The duct tape fell out, and she went to the bathroom to get help.
She was able to get the tape off the window with a broom.
She put it in a box, and it was all gone.
She had no clue where to start looking for the tape.
A spokeswoman for the American Electrical Contractors Association said duct tape can be easily removed.
She added that the association encourages people to be careful when removing duct tape, especially after a power outage.
“We’re not at all aware of anything like this in this area of the country,” said spokeswoman Beth Shuster.
“Duct tape can come loose, it can fall off, it’s not something you want to take to the store.”
She said most duct tape is in the form of duct tape strips.
