Lightning Safety Awareness Week, June 23 - June 27

There are an estimated 23 million cloud-to-ground lightning flashes each year in the United States, nearly 800,000 of which occur in Illinois alone. Lightning can be fascinating to watch, but it is also extremely dangerous – it is the underrated killer. Few people really understand the dangers of lightning. Many people don’t act promptly to protect their lives, property and the lives of others. The first step in solving this potentially life-threatening problem is through education.

The week of June 23 to June 27 is Lightning Safety Awareness Week.
