DLIMH shares LIGHTNING SAFETY this holiday weekend.
Thunder = Lightning.
NOWHERE IS SAFE OUTSIDE.
SEEK SHELTER when you hear thunder.
The best shelter is a house or substantial building.
The second-best shelter is an enclosed vehicle with a metal roof and windows rolled up.
STAY in shelter for 30 minutes after last sound of thunder.
STAY AWAY from windows and doors.
AVOID phones with cords, computers, other electrical devices, sinks, baths, and faucets, covered porches.
DO NOT LIE on concrete floors or
LEAN on concrete walls. Concrete can have metal bars in it.
If you are outside when a storm hits, get to LOWER GROUND.
NEVER lie flat on the ground.
NEVER seek shelter under an isolated tree. If you have no choice, stand under a group of shorter trees.
AVOID open fields.
If you are with a group of people, SPREAD OUT.
STAY AWAY from bodies of waters, including pools.
STAY AWAY from barbed wire fences, power lines, windmills, poles, large equipment, ladders, and wet ropes.
Tents offer NO PROTECTION from lightning. Sheds are NOT good shelters.
Boats on water with no cabin, drop anchor and GET LOW.
Boats with cabin, STAY INSIDE, DO NOT touch metal surfaces. STAY OFF the radio unless emergency.
If scuba diving and boat doesn't have cabin, it’s safer diving deep until storm passes (assuming you have air in your tank.)
Cave entrances are DANGEROUS during thunderstorms.
When playing sports, BE AWARE of approaching weather.
STOP OUTDOOR ACTIVITY if you hear thunder, see lightning, skies look threatening.
DUGOUTS are NOT SAFE.
Open-sided picnic shelters are NOT SAFE.
Be respectful of Mother Nature. Rehearse these facts like you do multiplication tables. Knowing 3x4=12 won't save your life. Knowing not to stand under an isolated tall tree with lightning, might.
