Ways to prepare and stay safe now

  • During
    Take shelter inside a sturdy building.
    A shed or structure in an open area is more likely to be hit by lightning.
    If driving in heavy rain, find a place to pull over and park.
    Stay in the car and turn on your hazard lights until the rain stops.
    Avoid touching anything metal, including the frame of your car.
    Metal conducts electricity, which can injure you.
    Avoid tall trees, hilltops, open fields, the beach, and boats on the water.
    These places are more likely to be hit by lightning.
    Unplug electronic equipment.
    Power surges from lightning can cause serious damage to computers, monitors, and TVs.
    Use only cell phones and cordless phones that are not plugged into an outlet.
    A power surge from an outlet could injure you.
