Orlando Florida | Tips for Dealing with Lightening!

Did you know Central Florida is considered the Lightening Capital of the Country?

From late spring until early fall, clouds gather, storms form, rain pours down and, a few minutes later, the sun comes out again. Beautiful, Florida sun!

Often you can look around quickly and see five or six different lightening strikes seeming to happen at the same time. Lightening is beautiful - but Beware! Lightening is very dangerous. The National Weather Service has prepared a page of lightening information of which you should be aware.

If you are outside and you hear thunder - get inside. Seek safe shelter. If you hear thunder you are within distance of a strike. Once the thunder quiets down - stay sheltered for the next 30 minutes. Lightening is still around.
