Why is it wise to avoid high open locations during a thunderstorm?
Since lightning is an electrical current, normally in a thunderstorm, little pieces of ice way up in the cloud collide together fast and hard, making an electrical charge,… which then eventually makes an electrical current that is known as lightning.
Lightning is caused by water falling through different clouds, building up a electrical difference between layers. When the potential difference becomes too great, eletrons tr…avel from the ground up to the layers, or between the layers in a giant spark. This is lightning.
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.
Tornadoes are produced by complex interactions of a thunderstorm's main updraft and other air currents in and near the storm. Only a thunderstorm can supply the necessary powe…r in a small enough area.
No when the water comes out of the shower it comes apart in little drops. It dosen't stay in a solid stream so you are safe.
Unless you are outdoors, there is no direct health risk to showering during lightning storms. However, there are two situations that it could cause: If the lights go out and t…here is no window in the bathroom, you might have some difficulty getting safely out of the shower.If there is some other problem caused by the storm (roof leak, wind damage, tornado, flood, or family emergency), you will not be in a position to immediately address it.
You should stay low in the middle of the boat. You should also secure any loose items. Lastly have emergency gear ready.
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.
In reality, it does not matter whether you are standing or crouching because a couple feet is not going to make you any more attractive as a conductor of electricity. What you… DO NOT want to do is sit or lay on the ground, increasing your surface area in contact with the ground. In the event that you are struck by lightning, you are less likely to survive if you do so.
When you are in a car during a thunderstorm the rubber on the wheels protect you from the storm.
No more so than at any other time.
As long as you are inside there is no danger of a person being hit by lightning. However the boat itself still stands a chance of being hit causing a fire. If at all possible …you should dock and find shelter. Boats and lightning don't mix.
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.
During thunderstorms, people should go indoors immediately, even if no rain is falling, and boaters should return to shore as rapidly as possible. I'm a blobfish so do what I …say
