At Storm Systems our staff is obsessed with the study of Lightning and its related phenomena. Storms can be both beautiful and deadly. Everyone enjoys outdoor activities and the risk of lightning can be mitigated through following some simple rules. By planning ahead and monitoring the weather you can stay safe. Storm systems can help with storm awareness through the use of our lightning detector but its up to you to then act on that information.
Lightning needs a conductor to travel. If you are indoors, use wireless phones instead of corded. Also, it's safe to use a laptop if it has no connections to the wall (on battery power/ w WiFi). In the event of a direct lightning strike your internet router may be damaged but you will save your laptop.
