National Lightning Safety Awareness Week
Jun 23 – Jun 29 all-day

The National Weather Service and the Ohio Committee for Severe Weather Awareness encourage all Ohioans to know what to do before, during and after thunderstorms and to practice severe weather safety and preparedness throughout the summer.

Although lightning strikes can occur at any time during the year, summer usually is peak season for thunder and lightning storms. There is no safe place outside when thunderstorms are in the area. If you hear thunder, you are likely within striking distance of the storm. Lightning safety practices can save lives. So, “When thunder roars, go indoors!” Stop outdoor activities and seek safe shelter immediately.

More awareness week information is available on the Severe Weather Awareness website.
