Lightning can be very fear-inspiring. It can send children into their parents’ bedroom and the pets under the bed, but in reality, the risk of getting hit by lightning is fairly low. That’s what being struck by lightning is used as a synonym for something that is unlikely to happen.
But even though you’re not at great risk of getting struck by lightning, there are some dangers to your home connected with lightning, but there are things you can do to protect yourself and your property.
Having tall trees near your home could be a danger since they could catch fire or topple over on your home if they are struck.
Your power lines could be a danger, especially in cases where there is a surge. If you don’t have a surge protector for your electronics, the wise move is to unplug valuable electronics to keep them safe. You should also avoid using a wired telephone (if you still have one of those) during the hours around a lightning storm.
