What to do in a storm

7/30/2021 (Permalink)

If there is a serious lightning storm over your house, start by taking precautions.

  • A general rule is the 30-30. If you hear thunder 30 seconds after seeing lightning, go inside and know that lightning could strike your area.
  • Unplug electrical devices in case of a surge. Do not touch any electrical device that is still plugged in – even a landline phone.
  • Avoid any faucet or fixture that has running water. Electricity can travel through pipes.
  • Do not stand on concrete floors or touch concrete walls. Electricity can travel through metal wiring inside of them.

These simple steps can help keep you and your loved ones safe if you do encounter a lightning strike.
