If you see lightning and hear thunder at the same time, that lightning is in your neighborhood. If you see successive strokes of lightning in the same place on the horizon then you are in line with the storm, and it may be moving toward you.
Some lightning originates in the top of the thunderstorm, the area carrying a large positive charge. Lightning from this area is called positive lightning. Positive lightning is particularly dangerous, because it frequently strikes away from the rain core, either ahead or behind the thunderstorm.
It can strike as far as 5 or 10 miles 8 or 16 kilometers from the storm, in areas that most people do not consider to be a lightning-risk area. The determining factor on whether a particular flash could be deadly depends on whether a person is in the path of the lightning discharge. Although some victims are struck directly by the main lightning stroke, many victims are struck as the current moves in and along the ground. Seek shelter and avoid situations in which you may be vulnerable.
When you see lightning, count the time until you hear thunder. If that time is 30 seconds or less, the thunderstorm is within six miles ten kilometers of you and is dangerous. Lead actor Jim Caviezel has claimed he was "lit up like a Christmas tree" while filming the Sermon on the Mount sequence of the film. Caviezel said that after the strike, fire was coming out of his head and his body was illuminated — though the cameras hadn't yet finished panning over to his position.
Caviezel wasn't the only person on the set of The Passion to get struck by lightning. The difference was that they saw the bolt come down and hit Jon All I felt was this giant tremendous slap on my ears and a few seconds of a pink, red static in front of my eyes. Unbelievably, that wasn't even the first time the assistant director had been struck on set. What are the odds of that happening? Because you can't exactly flay the skin off your star in real life, a hidden whipping post was set up behind Caviezel while filming The Passion of the Christ 's notoriously bloody scourging scene.
Britney did not even realize it until she struggled to open the door to her home and could not move her left arm. Next she noticed a burn mark on her wrist and shoulder and at the hospital the doctors told her that the bolt had entered her body through the shoulder and exited through the wrist, breaking her arm in the process.
She was lucky that the shock did not reach her heart and she recovered gradually. The chances of a normal person being struck in a year is out of , other people but Melvin Roberts has been hit 11 times! The probability of getting hit this many times could be factored down to the account for living in a specific area but it is still a rare thing to have happened.
Roberts lives in a state Seneca, South Carolina where the average likelihood of getting a hit is higher than other places.
His wife claims to have witnessed him getting struck all the times but Guinness book of world records wont place him due to lack of evidence. In , 12 year old Alice from Sweden was taking a shower in her home when lightning struck her, not once, but twice. Her family heard her scream twice after a brief interval.

I wasn't under the tree, I was out in the open, in the yard, the tree behind me.
I know better than to shelter under any tree. I was getting my dog, so he'd come in. I let him out to pee after the rain stopped. It was so surreal Never near any pointy thing including those pointy unmbrellas!
Came back to add that where I live in north central FL, it is the capital of lightning here. A couple of weeks ago, a strike hit the transformer across the street from our home, sparks flew and our power went out.
When it came back on several seconds later, the lights were dimming and getting brighter, then dimming. It was so weird. Like a horror movie. We hit the main breaker, cut our power, called the power company.
They came and replaced the transformer. Power back on, yay! I would think it to be safe then also! So scary! What did the lighting feel like when it passed through your body?
