How to Stay Safe During a Lightning Storm
National Fire Protection Association

Lightning is not only spectacular, it's dangerous. About 2,000 people are killed worldwide by lightning each year. Hundreds more survive strikes but suffer from a variety of lasting symptoms, including memory loss, dizziness, weakness, numbness and other life-altering ailments. Here are some things you can do to decrease your chance of getting struck.

If outside, seek refuge in a car or a lightning protected building when lightning or thunder begins.
If caught outside away from a building or car, stay clear of bodies of water and tall objects like trees. Find a low spot or depression and crouch down as low as possible, on the balls of your feet with your hands covering your ears. Don't lie down on the ground. Lightning can move in and along the ground surface and many victims are struck not by bolts but by the current.
If inside, avoid taking baths or showers and washing dishes. Also, avoid using land line phones, televisions and other appliances that conduct electricity.
Stay inside for 30 minutes after you last see lightning or hear thunder. People have been struck by lightning from storms centered as far as 10 miles (16 km) away.
Remember that the safest place to be during a lightning storm is in a building equipped with a UL 96A approved system.
