State Officials Warn Of Dangers From Lightning Strikes


The dangers of lightning go beyond the risk of fire… and state officials want you to take those dangers seriously. 

 

The Illinois Emergency Management Agency is issuing a reminder about summer storm safety… warning that if you can hear thunder, you could be within range of a lightning strike, even if the storm isn’t directly overhead. 

 

Officials say there is no safe place outdoors during a lightning storm.  Two people have already died in Illinois this year from lightning strikes.
