Why is it wise to avoid high open locations during a thunderstorm?
Wind speeds vary during a each thunderstorm. The strength of the storm decides how fast the wind speeds may be.
it isn't safe to stand in an open field during a thunder storm because you could get stuck by lightening or a tornado can form in the field. it isn't safe to stand …in an open field during a thunder storm because you could get stuck by lightening or a tornado can form in the field.
Because electric currents could shock you. Addition: Lightning is attracted to conductive objects such as metal, especially if the conductive object is connected to th…e ground where the electricity can discharge or complete its circuit. We are made of 90% water, and water is one of the most conductive elements in the world. In the case of lightning from a thunderstorm, touching the metal or any other conductive and connected object, it can be electrically charged or very hot. You could burn yourself or become part of the electrical current.
It usually does not. However, if you have two areas of high pressure, then that can create an area of relatively low pressure in between them. Air converges and rises in t…his area. If at least one of the high pressure systems contains air that is sufficiently warm and moist, this rising air can spark thunderstorms.
You should stay low in the middle of the boat. You should also secure any loose items. Lastly have emergency gear ready.
No. Some thunderstorms produce relatively little wind.
No, that is too dangerous. Because the ground is charge with a positive pole and the clouds with a negative one. And the lighting is "despaired" to come down the fastest possi…ble and always comes down in the highest point. If you are in an open field, you are the hightest point in there because there's no trees, houses,... around.
To keep safe you should consider the following. 1) Stay low 2) Stay away from trees, water, metal, electric objects, windows, and doors. 3) Go inside a car with closed window…s and doors
Being caught in a thunderstorm on open waters is very dangerous. But at that point there is nothing you can really do. Its obvious if you are close to shore that you should tr…y to get to land as fast and safely as possible. But if you are far from shore remain calm, Find anything on and around the boat that looks like a potential safety cover for you or whoever you are with. It also depends on the boat. Some boats have rooms downstairs but if you are stuck on a speed boat or pontoon there is nothing you can do. Stay far away from any metal and stay far away from the water surrounding you. If you feel its bad contact any safety team whether its on lake or ocean.
The highest thing is usually what's struck, but under a tree is not so good. Look for a ditch or a low spot and stay flat. Better wet than fried.
Due to an electrical surge can run through the power mains due to a telephone pole or electrical wiring being hit by lightning.
I thunderstorm by definition is a form of weather characterized by the presence of lightning and its acoustic effect on the Earth's atmoshpere known as thunder. Since lightnin…g is often discharged during a thunderstorm is is advised not to bath because water is a conductor of electricity and you could be electrocuted during the storm.
cumulonimbus clouds can grow to the tropopause
Yes. They only occur in a certain area so if you go outside this area then you will no longer be underneath the thunderstorm.
Because some metal objects are conductive... So if the lightingstrikes the metal object, and you're touching it.... you're goingto get electrocuted.
