Myth vs. Fact about Lightning

 As we all know that there's two places where the lightning hit this Month.  One in Venice Beach, CA, killed 1 person and few people got injured and secondly, in  Massachusetts - home was broken but no one was killed which is good.

Lightning is very dangerous because it can kills us. So we should pay attention when heard a thunder roars.  Forget whatever you do outside. Run and hide inside for the safety.

Anyway, I thought this news below can help us. Very interesting Myth vs. Fact about lightning:


News and images of several lightning strikes have been buzzing across the Web during the past couple of weeks. But despite the recent high-profile cases, lightning-related deaths are actually at an all-time low.

The latest incident happened Sunday in Venice Beach, California, when a bolt of lightning struck near the water, killing one person and injuring at least eight others. Last week, lightning struck and caused a fire that destroyed a Massachusetts home (no one was injured).

The recent rise in strikes is not random; we are at the peak of lightning season. “July is the month where [we] not only get the most lightning, but also more people are outside,” John Jensenius, meteorologist and lightning safety specialist for the National Weather Service, told Yahoo Health. “Because of those two factors, it’s the month where we see the most fatalities.”

There have been eight lightning-related deaths in July, but the fatality rate, said Jensenius, has steadily declined during the past 30 years. Last year, there were only 23 deaths in the United States, which is an all-time low. “I think during the past 10 or 15 years, making people more aware of the dangers has definitely played a role in lowering the fatality rate,” said Jensenius.

"When thunder roars, head indoors" is an oft-repeated tip by Jensenius and his colleagues. "Anytime you’re outside, you’re at risk," he said. And leisure activities, such as fishing, swimming, or playing outdoor sports, account for 62 percent of lightning deaths annually. (Of all leisure activities, fishing tops the list.)  To keep the awareness train rolling, we asked Jensenius and the National Weather Service to help us debunk some of the most popular lightning myths.

Myth: Lightning never strikes the same place twice.
Fact: This one has been around so long it’s been turned into a popular idiom. Too bad it’s simply not true. Lightning can strike multiple times in the same place, especially if that place is really tall and pointy. (Case in point: The Empire State Building is hit nearly 100 times a year.)

Myth: If it’s not raining or there aren’t clouds overhead, you’re safe from lightning.
Fact: The most important thing people should know is that if they hear thunder, they are within striking distance of lightning, according to Jensenius. And most people misjudge how far they are away from a storm. “You can hear thunder from a distance of about 10 miles, and lightning can strike outward from a storm as far as 10 miles,” he added. “If you hear thunder, you are likely within striking distance.”

Myth: Rubber tires on a car protect you by insulating you from the ground.
Fact: You are, in fact, protected in most cars, said Jensenius, but contrary to popular belief, it’s the hard metal surrounding that’s keeping you safe, not the rubber tires. Tires don’t protect you at all, so remember that when you are on a motorcycle, bicycle, ATV (such as a 4fourwheeler), or lawnmower during a storm. Convertibles and cars with fiberglass shells offer no protection either. If you’re riding in the car during a thunderstorm, don’t lean on the doors as they contain parts that can draw in electricity from outside the vehicle.

Anyway, besides of being a busy mommy, just recently my family went on a road trip from California to South Dakota at least 2 weeks. It was really fun trip! We passed by (6) states, such as, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, South Dakota, Colorado and Las Vegas. We visited the amazing places that I never seen before, like Great Salt Lake in Utah, Badland, Mount Rushmore National Memorial  in South Dakota, Bryce Canyon & Capitol Reef National Park in Utah, Winter Park in Colorado and so many stunning spots with in those states.

There are so many beautiful views that we didn't drop and see because of "short time". But we will definitely see them in our next road trip someday. We can't wait for that. :)
