Basic lightning safety

Lightning Tips:

Lightning is a threat anywhere thunderstorms occur. If you hear thunder, it is time to take shelter.

When inside:

  • Avoid using the telephone, or other electrical appliances.
  • Do not take a bath or shower, or stand near plumbing.

If outdoors:

  • Seek shelter in a sturdy building. A hard-top automobile can also offer protection.
  • If you are boating or swimming, get out of the water and move to a safe shelter on land.
  • If you are in a wooded area, seek shelter under a thick growth of relatively small trees.
  • If you feel your hair standing on end, squat with your head between your knees. Do not lie flat!
  • Avoid isolated trees or other tall objects, water, fences, convertible cars, tractors and motorcycles.
