INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT LIGHTNING
 
 

Anticipating a Thunderstorm

Keep a constant lookout for thunderstorm clouds in the region. These storm clouds can appear in a rather short period of time (say 15mins).

However, generally speaking once you see a deep dark threatening cloud forming take note. If you can hear rumblings or perhaps see lightning occurring you are already in a high risk situation.

Once you hear that audible rumbling and see that flash use the rule of thumb rough calculation which is for every 3 seconds between each flash roughly measures to 1 kilometer away.

  If you have a choice? DO NOT remain outdoors and find shelter in one of the following locations:


• Within a dedicated Safe area such as any area that is protected by a Lightning Protection System.
• Inside a metal-skinned car, or metal boat/ship with a metal roof
• Inside a substantial (normal headroom) metal-clad building
• Inside a large building, keeping away from windows and any appliances connected to outside electrical conductors
• City streets that are shielded by nearby buildings.

DO NOT STAND UNDER A TREE !!!

 

 

 

Funny how people expect that standing outside a car during a thunder storm is a smart cool thing to do eh!
