... Monday January 23 is lightning awareness day...

Lightning is one of nature's most unpredictable phenomena, and makes
all thunderstorms potential killers. Central Florida is the most
active lightning hotspot in North America with thunderstorms
occurring almost daily from late may through early October.

A distant or developing storm may not appear threatening, but
lightning is most dangerous near the edge of a storm because people
often associate the peak threat with peak rainfall. The majority of
lightning victims are not struck during the height of the storm but
rather before the storm reaches its peak because people do not seek
shelter quickly enough, or shortly after the rain has ended because
people leave shelter too soon.

Remember, lightning cannot be avoided in the same way one would
avoid a tornado or hurricane. The only way to avoid being struck is
to not be in the spot when and where it strikes. Simply put, if you
hear thunder, you are at risk of being struck.

It is essential to take lightning safety into account when planning
outdoor activities, especially in the Summer. Get continuous weather
updates if thunderstorms are predicted and be ready to implement an
evacuation plan should a storm approach or form nearby.

Take shelter if darkening skies appear, even if thunder has not yet
been heard. Halt outdoor activities immediately and move indoors if
thunder is heard. Remain indoors until 30 minutes after the last
clap of thunder. Picnic pavilions, baseball dugouts, beach shacks,
and isolated trees should be avoided. If an enclosed building is not
available, then an enclosed metal vehicle is the next best
alternative. Convertible automobiles and Golf carts do not provide
lightning protection.
