Know These Six Lightening Myths

Seek shelter indoors, not under a tree.

Right: Being under a tree is the second leading cause of lightning casualties.

Is it true that lightning never strikes the same place twice?

NO: Lightning will follow the path of least resistance and has been know to strike many of the world’s tallest buildings multiple times each day.

Do the rubber tires of a car protect you from lightning?

No: The rubber tires on a car, bike, or other vehicles won’t protect you. What will save you is the metal shell of the hard-topped metal vehicle.

Does the Thunder always follow lightning?

NO: Thunder will ALWAYS occur after lightning, whether you hear it or not; this is because lightning can strike 15 miles away from a thunderstorm. Suppose a lightning victim is electrified. If you touch them, will you also be electrified?

Can lightning produce wildfires?
