Wellness Tip: Don’t take lightning lightly

If you’re like most people, you’re loving this summer weather and spending more time outdoors. But, summer weather also brings thunderstorms. All thunderstorms produce lightning and are dangerous.

Lightning often strikes as far as 10 miles away from any rainfall. Many deaths from lightning occur ahead of the storm, so don’t wait until the last minute before seeking shelter. Remember you are in danger from lightning if you can hear thunder.
