Safety precaution when lightning strike

When a thunderstorm threatens, get inside a home or large building, or inside an all-metal (not convertible) vehicle

Inside a home, avoid using the telephone, except for emergencies

If outside, with no time to reach a safe building or an automobile, follow these rules

Do not stand underneath a natural lighting rod such as a tall, isolated tree

Avoid projecting above the surrounding landscape as you would do if you were standing on a hilltop, in an open field, on the beach, or fishing from a small boat

Get out of and away from open water

Get away from tractors and other metal farm equipment

Get off of and away from motorcycles, scooters, golf carts and bicycles. Put down golf clubs.

Stay away from wire fences, clotheslines, metal pipes, rails and other metallic paths which could carry lightning to you from some distance away.

Avoid standing in small isolated sheds or other small structures in open areas.

In a forest, seek shelter in a low area under a thick growth of small trees. In open areas, go to a low place such as a ravine or a valley. Be alert for flash floods.

If you're hopelessly isolated in a level field of prairie and you feel your hair stand on end - indicating that lightning is about to strike - drop to your knees and bend forward putting your hands on your knees. Do not lie flat on the ground.
