BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

Lightning has struck twice in a day for one store in Northampton County.

The holders of two winning Cash 5 tickets will split a $500,000 jackpot, lottery officials said.

Both tickets were sold for Tuesday's drawing at Tom's Tobacco Shop at 1880 Stefko Blvd. in Bethlehem.

Each ticket matched all five balls -- 10-19-23-27-43 -- to win $250,000.

The retailer will receive a $1,000 bonus for selling the winning tickets.

Wednesday's Powerball jackpot has grown to $360 million.
