April’s safety tip is storm awareness: How far away is the lightning? “Count the number of seconds between a flash of lightning and the sound of the resulting thunder. Divide this number by 5 to get an estimate of the distance in miles to the lightning strike. Remember, if you are outdoors and can hear thunder, you are in danger of being struck by lightning.” FEMA website
