When lightning flashes or thunder roars, stay indoors.
If a storm is coming or underway, go into an enclosed building or a hardtop car and close the windows. Stay there for 30 minutes or more until the thunder stops. If you are caught outdoors during a lightning storm and you cannot reach a building or car, stay away from trees, water, tall objects, and anything metal, as lightning is drawn to these things. Squat or kneel and bend forward with your hands on your knees. Do not lie down.
