Weekly Safety Tip: Emergency Preparedness – Lightning

Lightning kills approximately 55 people per year and injures many more. Everyone should understand the danger of lightning and what actions to take during a storm, especially those who work outdoors.

Lightning is most often encountered during warm, humid weather and may often accompany summer rainstorms. Lightning is the electrostatic discharge between electrically charged areas within clouds or between a cloud and the earth’s surface. The areas temporarily equalize the charge between themselves and yield a corresponding discharge or flash, which is called lightning. A lightning strike is when lightning hits an object on the ground.

Thunder is the sound made by lightning. Thunder is an indicator of how close the lightning is, based on how closely it follows the lightning flash. In addition, because it is sometimes heard before the storm starts, thunder can be a warning.
