“Lightning can strike over 10 miles away from the base of a thunderstorm, many accidents have occurred well before a storm moves over or even when the storm is well away from the area,” explains digital certified meteorologist Irene Sans. “When thunder roars, go indoors. There is no other rule that works when there is lightning around.”
There weren’t believed to be any injuries.
