  • Lightning can strike up to 10 miles away from a storm
  • If you hear thunder, lightning is close enough to strike you
  • Move inside a strong building or an enclosed hardtop vehicle
  • Avoid contacting inside wiring and plumbing during a thunderstorm; this includes appliances and corded phones
  • Stay in shelter for 30 minutes after the last thunder
  • If someone is struck by lightning, call for help immediately
