Amica Insurance tackles 4 lightning myths

With the summer upon us, thunderstorms become a more frequent occurrence. That’s why Amica Insurance is helping to debunk five lightning myths to promote safety.

Amica is sharing the following information from the National Weather Service:

Myth: If it’s not raining or there aren’t clouds above, there is no imminent threat of lightning.

  • Fact: Lightning often strikes more than three miles from the center of the thunderstorm, well away from the rain or thunderstorm cloud.

Myth: If caught outside during a thunderstorm, crouching reduces the risk of being struck.

  • Fact: Crouching doesn't make it any safer outdoors. Take shelter in a substantial building or hard-topped vehicle.

Myth: Rubber tires on a car protect from lightning by insulating you from the ground.

  • Fact: Most cars are safe from lightning. However, it is the metal roof and metal sides that protect you, not the tires.

Myth: Being indoors will keep you completely safe from lightning.

  • Fact: When inside, be sure to avoid anything that conducts electricity, such as corded phones, electrical appliances, wires, TV cables, computers, plumbing and metal doors.
