How do you stay safe in a lightning storm?
– First and foremost. When thunder roars, head indoors. Push comes to shove, this is the safest bet. And stay away from wires and pipes.
– When you can’t go to a building, get in a car. Unless it’s a convertible or completely made of fiberglass, you’re safe in there.
– Avoid fields or tall objects like a tree when there is a thunderstorm. If it sounds like there are not many other choices you are correct. Therefore, know the weather before you go.
