Summer is the peak season for one of the nation's deadliest weather phenomena--lightning. Though lightning strikes peak in summer, people are struck year round. In the United States, an average of 51 people are killed each year by lightning, and hundreds more are severely injured.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Weather Service (NWS) have put together a couple of brochures to assist people in getting prepared and educated for dealing with Thunder and Lightning Storms.
