5 things you should not do during a thunderstorm
5. Washing dishes, getting dressed or have a shower:
One of the ways lightning enters a structure after hitting it, is by traveling through the pipeline system. If you are using a faucet, you could be electrocuted or get a terrible fright.
Therefore, there is an excuse to do not wash the dishes at least temporarily!
4. Talking on phone:
If by chance a lightning strike falls on the pole that supports the telephone cable at the moment you speak, this could cause a voltage rise that will be transmitted through the lines to your headset, from there to your ear and the rest of your body.
3. Watch TV or use electrical appliances:
Similar to how lightning travels through phone cables, it also travels through electrical cables and outlets. You can disconnect the electrical devices to protect themselves from short circuits due to voltage surges.
2. Driving or traveling in a convertible:
In the case of convertible vehicles, the lack of a metal roof could make a lightning strike directly on you, and your rubber tires would not be worth anything to stop.
1. Touch electrical or metallic objects inside the car:
If a lightning strikes your vehicle, some remnants of electrical current may flow through your electrical systems and metal parts, such as the radio, cell phone charger, USB connectors, and even the steering wheel.
Therefore, the best way to stay safe is to get on the side of the road by turning on the emergency lights and paying for the engine. Then keep your hands on your lap, the windows closed and wait until the storm has passed before continuing your journey or getting out of the car.
