... March 1 through March 7 is severe weather preparedness week
in Illinois... todays subjuect... lightning safety...

Lightning is the most frequent important weather threat to personal
safety during the thunderstorm season. Keep these lightning safety
tips in mind...

Plan ahead and avoid dangerous lightning situations. Check the
latest forecast before going outdoors for extended periods. Watch
for storms and seek shelter indoors when storms approach.

Lightning often strikes the tallest object. If caught outdoors
during a storm... dont stand next to tall trees or power poles. And
dont be out in an open area where you may be the tallest object. A
closed... hard top metal vehicle is safe in a thunderstorm. An open
structure such as a picnic shelter will keep you dry but it will not
protect you from lightning.

If boating or swimming... get out of the water when storms approach
and seek shelter indoors.

Avoid using electrical appliances... corded telephones and metal
plumbing when indoors during a thunderstorm. It is okay to use a
cell phone or cordless phone.

The best way to stay safe from lightning is to go indoors as soon as
there is a threat. A good way to remember is... when thunder roars...
go indoors. There is no safe place outdoors when lightning is present

Look for more information during National lightning safety awareness
week June 21 through June 27 or visit www.Lightningsafety.NOAA.Gov.
