Lightning Safety Awareness Week June 24 - 30

Article Published 06/18/2007

Lightning Safety Awareness Week is June 24-30 and the National Weather Service requests your help in this campaign designed to educate the citizens of Utah about lightning risks and how to protect yourself and your loved ones.

During the last 50 years, 60 people have been killed in Utah by lightning, more than any other thunderstorm related hazard.  With your help in spreading the lightning safety message, hopefully we can help reduce the number of lightning victims.  This year's lightning safety slogan is, "When Thunder Roars, Go Indoors!"
