Two people were critically injured this weekend when struck by lightning in separate incidents in Minnesota. Read about it in the Star Tribune.
Early summer is a time when thunder and lightning storms are common and no one wants to interrupt their game or outdoor activities just because of a few rumbles thunder. But don’t ignore the threat. If you hear thunder, you are likely within striking distance of lightning. Get to safety immediately. Remember the phrase, “When Thunder Roars, Go Indoors”.
