5 Things to remember during the lightning season


Five things to remember during the lightning season: 1. The best protection during this time of the year is to remember to monitor the weather forecast, information is your best defense. 2. The moment you hear the thunderstorm, immediately rush for the safest place, either indoors or the lowest area possible. 3. If you’re in the beach, or near a metal gate, rush to immediately leave the beach or stay indoor possibly away from the metal gate because when lightning strikes, the body of water, and the gate are both conductors of electricity. 4. Unplug all the electrical appliances for safety just in case the lightning goes through your electrical system. 5. Never stand under a tree for your own safety.
