Baseball, barbecues, beaches and ice cream dripping down your cone – these are the things we like to think about in the summer. This week, the National Lightning Safety Council is making sure that’s all you have to think about with their annual National Lightning Safety Awareness Week.
Lightning may not have the destructive power of a hurricane, but that false sense of security has made it one of the leading causes of weather-related deaths. Make sure your summer is safe and fun for everyone by familiarizing yourself with the danger lightning can pose. If nothing else, just remember: When thunder roars, go indoors!
