Do you know the truth about lightning?

At any time around 1,800 thunderstorms are happening around the world. The majority of them will have lightning. This is a big risk for properties and people. While it is possible to install protective systems on all kinds of property, it is harder to protect people. This is especially difficult if they are outside during the storm. The best bet is to take shelter in a structure or vehicle. It is also helpful to know the myths and facts about lightning.


One common misconception is that lightning only targets the tallest objects. This isn’t actually the case. The fact of the matter is that lightning is indiscriminate. Regardless of where you are, it can find you. Lightning could strike the ground rather than a tree. It may even hit a car instead of a local telephone pole. You’re not safe in a car park either; lightning can strike it instead of that tall building nearby.

You need more than surge suppressors and arresters
