When lightning threatens:

  1. Stay indoors. Don't venture outside unless absolutely necessary.
  2. If in a car in open country - stay in the car.
  3. Don't use electrical equipment.
  4. Fishing rods and golf clubs can particularly attract lightning.
  5. Get out of the water and off of small boats.
  6. Avoid standing under isolated trees in open areas.
  7. When you feel the electric charge - if your hair stands on end or your skin tingles - lightning may be about to strike you. Drop to the ground immediately!
