Some basic Do's and Don'ts during thunderstorm


1. If you’re outdoors, seek shelter from lightning! Buildings are best for shelter, but if no buildings are available, you can find protection in a cave, ditch, or a canyon. Trees are not good cover! Tall trees attract lightning.

2. If you can't find shelter, avoid the tallest object in the area. If only isolated trees are nearby, your best protection is to crouch in the open, keeping twice as far away from isolated trees as the trees are high.


3. Stay or go indoor! If you hear thunder, don't go outside unless absolutely necessary. Remember, by counting the seconds between the flash and the thunder and dividing by 3, you can estimate your distance from the strike (in km).


4. Stay away from anything that could conduct electricity. This includes fireplaces, radiators, stoves, metal pipes, sinks, and phones. Thunderstorm activity is maximum.

5. Get out of the water. This includes getting off small boats on the water.

6. When you feel electric charge- If your hair stands up or your skin starts to tingle, lightning may be about be strike you. Drop to the ground immediately.


1. Don't use any plug-in electrical appliances like hairdryers, electric toothbrushes or electric razors. If lightning strikes your house, they can connect the charge to you.

2. Don’t use the telephone during the storm. Lightning may strike the telephone lines outside.

3. Don't use metal objects outside.

Detailed lightning Safety Tips

1. The SAFEST location during lightning activity is a large enclosed building, not a picnic shelter or shed. The second safest location is an enclosed metal vehicle, car, truck; van, etc., but NOT a convertible, bike or other topless or soft top vehicle. A safe building is one that is fully enclosed with a root walls, and floor, such as a home, school, office building or a shopping center.


2. A safe vehicle is a hard-topped car, SUV, minivan, bus, tractor, etc. {soft-topped convertibles are not safe). If you seek shelter in your vehicle, make sure all doors are closed, and window scrolled up. Do not touch any metal surfaces.


3. Seek safe shelter when you first hear thunder, see dark, threatening clouds developing over head or lightning.

4. Do NOT seek shelter under tall isolated trees. The tree may help you stay dry but will significantly increase your risk of being struck by lightning. Rain will not kill you, but the lightning can!

5. Do NOT seek shelter under partially enclosed buildings.

If you absolutely cannot get to a safe building or vehicle, here are some last resort choices:

1. Wait out the storm below an overpass. DO NOT touch steel girders. Move away from your bike. Remain on dry surfaces if possible. Overpasses are engineered structures and are likely to be properly grounded. Although an overpass is likely to be higher than the surrounding landscape, if it is struck by lightning, the electrical current will likely be channeled safely into the ground.

2. Look for a bridge. Stay away from water. Stay away from any metal surfaces. Be alert for rapidly rising water if under a bridge.

3. High tension wires: If high voltage electrical tension wires cross the road, you may want to seek shelter directly underneath these wires. Do not get too close to the large metal towers which holdup these wires. Stay at least 50 feet away. Electric companies design these high-tension wires for lightning strikes. If lighting should strike the wires or towers, the current is designed to safely go deep into the ground. Source plz read Instruction in this app
