If you Hear a Roar, Get Indoors!

6/14/2021 (Permalink)

Summer time is the perfect time for people to relax and enjoy the great outdoors. But outdoors is not the place to be when you hear a storm rolling in!

There is a saying, "If you hear a roar, get indoors." The roar is referring to thunder. There is technically no place outside that is safe during a storm. 

Never seek shelter under a tree or around poles. Lightning tends to strike taller objects. 

Don't lie down on the ground either; thinking it will hit something taller than you. It will travel to the ground. 

Stay away from water; even the kitchen sink or shower. 

Lightening can strike from even 10 miles away. Amazing right?

So don't wait to see lightning. Listen. If you hear thunder get indoors and waiting patiently for the storm to pass. 

Deaths happen every year from lightning strikes. Don't let it happen to you. Just remember that old saying, "If you hear a roar, get indoors!"
