Avoiding a Lightning Strike in Colorado

Avoiding a lightning strike in Colorado can be as simple as, stay indoors, but what if you’re caught outside?

Surviving Lightning Stockbyte

SURVIVING LIGHTNING:

  • Obviously the number one way to avoid a strike and survive is to stay indoors, especially if you cannot count to 30 before hearing thunder.
  • If you’re outdoors, take cover right away. Find a low lying area under a cluster of small trees, but don’t stand too close to them.
  • Avoid tall and isolated objects as lightning tends to strike these objects most frequently.
  • If you are caught outdoors in an open area find the lowest spot and avoid bodies of water. Crouch in a baseball catchers stance, cover your ears and balance on the balls of your feet without letting your feet touch each other.

Should you hear buzzing or crackling while your hair is standing on its ends and your skin tingles, a lightning strike is near and you should take every precaution to minimize the threat.
