A Bunch of Weather Stuff Going On…Did That Get Your Attention?
With it being Severe Weather Safety Week, today we look at what you thought you knew about lightning.
Ever heard the myth that 1 second between lightning and thunder means the lightning is 1 mile away? False! Divide the seconds by 5 to get the real distance. Moral of the story: The math doesn't lie, and lightning is usually much closer to you than you think it is.
