Lightning is a common occurrence across Alabama considering we have our fair share of thunderstorms in this part of the country. Although most lightning occurs in the summer, people can be struck at any time of year. Lightning kills an average of 49 people in the United States each year, and hundreds more are severely injured.

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. Just remember, When Thunder Roars, Go Indoors. Stay in safe shelter at least 30 minutes after you hear the last sound of thunder.

NEW! Lightning safety slogan for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community: See a Flash, Dash Inside! You can view the new PSA here. Not everyone can hear thunder, signaling that they need to take shelter. This lightning safety outreach initiative is meant to reach the Deaf and Hard of Hearing and give actionable advice to help this community be weather-ready!
