Lightning Safety – Thursday, Feb. 7
- Lightning can strike from several miles away. If you can hear thunder, you are in danger of being struck by lightning. Stay indoors until 30 minutes after you hear the last clap of thunder.
- Avoid showering or bathing during thunderstorms, as plumbing and bathroom fixtures can conduct electricity from lightning.
- Also if you have not already, Sign up for Civic Ready through the Laurens County Website. These notifications will keep you aware of immediate danger and also will help with the planning for your family. If you have any additional questions please contact Laurens County Emergency Management at (478) 277-2911.
