Thunderstorms and lightning are always possible in our area. Every thunderstorm produces lightning. Homes and people across the country are struck by lightning every year.   Depending on the time of year and atmospheric conditions thunderstorms can happen with little to no warning. We recommend everyone to be proactive identifying ways to prepare and mitigate the effects of lightning.
