Top 5 At 7:45 – Lightning Safety Tips

ChinaFotoPress

Can you believe that this week is National Lightening Awareness Week? Tis’ the season for an occasional or frequent lightening storm, depending on where you live in Wyoming. According to NOAA and the National Weather Service, this is the week to be aware of those lightening bolts and what you can do to avoid them.

Today on the Top 5 at 7:45, I’ll highlight the top 5 safety tips to consider should you find yourself in a lightening storm. The Top 5 at 7:45 airs weekdays on KGAB Mornings with me, Gary Freeman.

  1. Stay in a safe place of shelter at least 30 minutes after you hear the last roar of thunder.
  2. Move – when you hear thunder, immediately move to a safe place of shelter like a building or a metal top vehicle with the windows rolled up.
  3. Do not use a tree for cover – many people have been blasted by lightening in this place.
  4. No place out doors is safe, when there is lightening in the area.
  5. Never lie flat on the ground – especially on concrete surfaces. Charged particles run rampant on concrete and could increase your chances of getting blasted.
