Electrical Safety: Caught in a Storm?

Bill’s Quality Electric, LLC shares electrical safety tips with a special focus on the dangers of lightning in thunder storms and how to prevent electrical shock.  We’ve all been caught in the thunderstorm a time or two, haven’t we? When you see lightning zag across the sky, you want to take cover!  Why is it that lightning is such a danger during storms if we are outdoors, besides the fact that it is electricity incarnate?  Just like electricity in a power line is always looking for the fastest path to ground, lightning can also present the same danger.  And you present, just by being vertical on the ground, a path to ground. Not a good thing.  Yet, often the first thing we consider when caught outdoors in a storm is to go find cover under a tree in case it starts to pour out. But trees are even more susceptible toward lightning strikes due to their height. And if a tree is struck and you’re under it, you become a part of that path too. Not a good thing.  So, what can you do to stay safe when caught in a storm? Find shelter if at all possible. If there is none, stay LOW. You are less likely to get struck by lightning if you remain horizontal or at least not like a tree when there aren’t any around.  Stay Electrically Safe and Smart when a storm erupts to prevent electrical shock dangers from happening to you!  Copyright 2016 Bill’s Quality Electric, LLC
