How to Survive a Thunderstorm?

What to do during a thunderstorm

Thunderstorms are a natural phenomena and can be very devastating due to strong winds, frequent lightning and rain.

The recent thunderstorm in North India in may 2018 has validated the above fact completely.

It caused a lot of damage to life and property.

However, one can follow some precautions to stay safe during a thunderstorm.

In this post, we share some Do's and Don'ts which everyone must remember and follow during a thunderstorm.





Do's


  • Avoid contact with corded phones or devices including those plugged into an electrical socket. Cordless or mobile phones not connected to a socket are okay to use.



  • Use battery operated radios for weather updates.



  • Avoid contact with electrical equipment. If possible, keep them turned off. Electrical surges can damage them.



  • Stay away from doors, windows and balconies.



  • Avoid poles and trees in open areas, if you are taking shelter outside.



  • If possible, take shelter in sturdy buildings.



  • If driving, safely park the vehicle and turn on the emergency lights. Stay inside the vehicle and avoid touching metal or other conducting surfaces.






Don'ts


  • Do not lie on concrete floors or lean against concrete walls.



  • Don't stay out in open areas or fields.



  • Don't stand below a tree or pole during lightning.



  • Don't drive through a flooded road.



  • Do not touch a metal object or object that can conduct electricity.


Thunderstorm can be a deadly natural phenomena but if some precautions, as mentioned above, are taken then one can easily survive it.
