With all of the summer showers that occur in Texas, we need to stay informed on what to do in case of lightning and thunder. The following are some tips on how to stay safe when thunder and lightning are in your area.
To obtain free insurance quotes or better insurance coverage please contact an independent insurance agency like us who can offer multiple carriers.
- Stay off corded electrical equipment such as phones or computers. Also, avoid touching electrical equipment like computers or televisions (remote controls are okay to touch).
- Avoid plumbing, such as sinks, baths or faucets.
- Stay away from windows, doors, and anything concrete.
- If you are stuck outside, avoid open fields or hilltops. Additionally, stay away from tall objects, especially ones that are isolated such as a tree. Finally, stay away from water because although water does not attract lightning, it conducts electricity which is also dangerous.
