Where is the safest place to be during a thunderstorm?
Indoors within a properly insulated area, away from any water
sources and electrical conductors.
MORE CANT HURT ...
Tall, pointy objects standing alone in an open space are more
likely to get struck by lightning but it's by no means a certainty.
Sometimes the flat ground next to a tall tree can be hit. A car or
other enclosed metal structure is the safest place to be in a
thunderstorm. Failing that, a ditch, trench or group of shrubs of
uniform height is better than nothing. Keep away from boundary
areas between dissimilar terrain (water and land; rock and earth;
trees and fields). Also keep at least five metres away from metal
objects or other people as lightning will often jump from one
object to another.
