Environment: Health Tip: If You're Stuck Outdoors During a Storm
Source: HealthDay

(HealthDay News) -- If you're stuck outside when a storm surprises you, the National Weather Service offers these suggestions for what to do:

  • If you can safely travel to your vehicle, go inside until the storm passes.
  • Avoid wide-open fields, the tops of a hills or ridges.
  • If in a forest, stay near a group of low trees. Avoid tall trees and isolated objects.
  • If camping, head down to a ravine or valley. A tent won't offer any protection against lightning.
  • Stay away from any metal objects, water and wet objects.
