National Lightning Safety Awareness Week (June 23-29)

 

Summer is here! And that means New Yorkers will likely see an increase in thunder and lightning storms. Take a moment during National Lightning Safety Awareness Week (June 23-29) to learn how to stay safe in a thunderstorm. Check out Ready.gov for more information on thunderstorm safety.
 
Outdoors:
•    When thunder roars, go indoors.
•    Do not take shelter in small sheds, bleachers, or under trees.
•    Avoid open fields or the top of hills.
•    Stay away from water, wet items, and metal objects.


Indoors:
•    Stay indoors. Stay inside at least 30 minutes after you hear the last clap of thunder.
•    Do not touch anything plugged into an electrical outlet.
•    Avoid contact with plumbing; do not wash your hands; and do not take a shower or bath.
