What precautions must you take when in a house during a lightning storm?
It is not a good time to be taking a shower or bath. The piping system is a good conduit for electricity and pools of water may attract lightening. Using the telephone and electrical appliances is also not a good idea, the wiring being designed to carry electricity. Close ALL windows and doors. Bring your pets inside. Unplug any electrical things such as toasters, blenders, etc. Turn off the TV and radio! Even cell phones shouldn't be used during an electrical storm. Don't go outside to have a look and stay away from the windows! I actually had a "fireball" come right through my living room window (I was sitting on the couch) and enter my TV (a freak storm with no warning.) The window had no damage nor did the TV. My husband witnessed it and said as the streak passed me my hair shot up. LOL
well i think that if there house is farely tall, they shoudl get a lightning rod! Lightning Rods can help prevent alot of bad vibes coming in your house during a storm. If you have tall trees by your house, I would get them cut down so nothing can tip over on your house during that storm. Plus you should always get some storm windows. :)
You should not be next to any trees or metal. Trees are often struck by lightning and catch on fire easily . Anything metal attracts the lightning as well. When you are outside during lightning try to not go by anything metal or trees as if stay in a more open space. It could be very dangerous if your outside during a lightning storm .
High atop a roof holding on to a lightning rod with one hand while standing in water and holding a grounding line with the other and listening to an iPod through headphones. Or just in water. There are a lot of bad places to be during a lightning storm and many of them don't have a thing to do with lightning. ; )
VERY VERY DANGEROUS!!!!!!!!! Never ever swim during a storm!!! Because lighting is attracted to tree's and water, I learned this in Science. If you were swimming during a lightning storm, and lightning happed to strike the water, you would get electrified and you would die. So yes, it is very dangerous, and you shouldn't ever do it.
