Lightning: What You Need to Know

1. NO PLACE outside is safe when thunderstorms are in the area.

2. If you hear thunder, lightning is close enough to strike you.

3. When you hear thunder, immediately move to safe shelter: a substantial building with electricity or plumbing or an enclosed, metal-topped vehicle with windows up.

4. Stay in safe shelter at least 30 minutes after you hear the last sound of thunder.
