Precautions to be taken during thunderstorms and lightning

  1. It is not advisable to seek shelter under trees. During thunderstorms, stay away from ponds, lakes, and other water bodies.
  2. Make sure you are indoors – inside your car, bus, or train; seek a safe pukka shelter. Once you hear the last thunderclap, do not go outside for thirty minutes.
  3. In the absence of shelter, enter the lightning crouch- a ball-like position with hands over your ears so that you are low and minimize contact with the ground.
  4. Keep a safe distance from downed power lines and do not use any electrical or electronic appliances.
