From the National Preparedness Community

Summer is the peak season for one of the nation’s deadliest weather phenomena–lightning. Though lightning strikes peak in summer, people are struck year round. In the United States, an average of 51 people are killed each year by lightning, and hundreds more are severely injured. While lightning fatalities have decreased over the past 30 years, lightning continues to be one of the top three storm-related killers in the United States.

Often, these injuries and deaths are due to misinformation around the seriousness of thunderstorms and lightning. Lightning Awareness Week exists to help bring these issues to light and to ultimately help save lives.
