“…Please note the following recommendations from Environment Canada:

The existence of blue sky and absence of rain are not protection from lighting. Lighting
can and does strike as far as ten (10) miles away from the rain shaft. It does not have to
be raining for lighting to strike.

Many lighting casualties occur in the beginning, as the
storm approaches, because many people ignore initial precursors of high winds, some
rainfall and cloud cover. Generally, the lightning threat diminishes with time after the last
sound of thunder, but may persist for more than thirty (30) minutes.

Lightning can strike ahead of the parent cloud – take action even if the thunderstorm is
not overhead.

Be aware of how close lightning is occurring. The flash-to-bang method is the easiest
and most convenient way to estimate how far away lightning is occurring. Thunder
always accompanies lightning, even though its audible range can be diminished due to
background noise in the immediate environment and its distance from the observer….”
