Protection from Lightning - Smart Strategies for Hikers and All Outdoor Enthusiasts
Prevention is your best protection against lightning. Be sure to check your local weather report before you head outside. Learn how to read the sky and where to run for cover. Lightning can and does strike in the same place twice, do not make yourself vulnerable by becoming a target.
Reading the Sky Stay aware of the sky above you with your eyes and ears. To estimate how far away a lightening storm is, count the time between the lightning flash and the sound of thunder. Every five seconds difference in time equals one mile in distance. If you hear thunder 12 seconds after you see a flash, the lightning struck just over 2 miles away (2 2/5 miles).
Things and Places to Avoid
Safe Havens The preferred (safest) place to be during a lightning storm is inside a home, large building or a car (but, never a convertible).
Stuck in the Storm To do your best to avoid injury:
