With all of the recent thunderstorms I have started to wonder about their dangers. The most dangerous part of a thunderstorm is the lightning. The next most dangerous parts of a thunderstorm are if it includes hail and heavy rain.
While it is possible to survive being struck by lightning, around 30 people die from a lightning strike per year. Although these odds seem low it is still possible to get hurt from things like lightning causing a tree to fall on you or your house. That is why it is important to stay inside during thunderstorms and to not be outside at a high altitude. I also try to avoid taking a shower or bath during a thunderstorm.
