This is Severe Weather Awareness Week and the National Weather Service says the most frequently occurring summer hazardous weather is lightning and offers the following warning:
"All thunderstorms contain deadly lightning. Postpone outdoor activities if you can hear thunder. Move to a sturdy building or hard topped vehicle. Stay away from tall objects such as towers, isolated trees and telephone poles. If caught outdoors in a remote area, find a low spot. Make sure your choice is not susceptible to flooding. If in the woods, take shelter under smaller trees. If you are boating or swimming, seek shelter on land immediately. When thunder roars, go indoors!"
