Today Is Lightning Awareness Day In WI


We’ve seen enough rain lately, and with the storms, comes the increased chance of lightning. Today has been designated as Lightning Safety Awareness Day in Wisconsin, and with more people looking to enjoy the outdoors in anyway possible, it’s a great reminder to have a plan for lightning and put that plan into place when you hear thunder. 

Lightning can strike from as far as 10-15 miles away, which means when you hear thunder, it’s a good time to head indoors. Bobbi Hicken, Director of Communications and Emergency Management for Fond du Lac County, says it’s important to identify what you and others around you are responsible for, in the event lightning ends up being part of your outdoor activity. You can find more Lightning Safety tips at www.ready.gov.
