Summer Is Peak Time for Lightning Strikes
Date:7/12/2008

uring a storm, get into a hardtop car, bus or truck. Never go under a tree. About 25 percent of lightning strike fatalities occurred when the person was under a tree, according to NOAA data.
  • Wait 30 minutes after the last crack of thunder or flash of lightning before resuming activities.
  • Even surviving a lightning strike can leave you with permanent health issues, including chronic pain, brain injury and thought-processing problems, said Cooper, who is considered the leading international expert on lightning-strike injuries.

    More information

    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has more about lightning safety.
