... Continuing severe weather awareness week for Texas... Oklahoma...
Louisiana... and Arkansas...

Today's topic is lightning safety...

There are an estimated 25 million cloud to ground lightning flashes
each year. While lightning can be fascinating to watch... it is also
dangerous. Most lightning caused deaths occur during the Spring and
Summer months when the frequency of thunderstorms and outdoor
activities peak.

By definition... all thunderstorms produce lightning. During a
thunderstorm... each flash of cloud to ground lightning is a potential
killer. Although some victims are struck directly by the main
lightning stroke... most are affected indirectly when lightning
strikes nearby objects... and the electrical current moves through the
ground. Because these indirect strikes are weaker in intensity...
most victims survive... though often with painful and lifelong
effects. While most people take some protective action during a
thunderstorm... many unknowingly still leave themselves vulnerable.

Lightning can strike as far as 10 miles away from the base of a
thunderstorm... which is about the distance from a storm that you are
able to hear its thunder. If you can hear thunder... then you are
close enough to be struck by lightning.
