Question

A lightning strike is so strong that it can destroy life and property. Select the safe measure(s) to be taken to protect ourselves.


  1. Using Telephone having cord

  2. Switching on / off electric lights

  3. Using a mobile phone

  4. None of the above


Solution

The correct options are
B

Switching on / off electric lights


C

Using a mobile phone


During a thunderstorm contact with telephone cords, electrical wires and metal pipes should be avoided. Bathing should be avoided during thunderstorms to avoid contact with running water. Carrying an umbrella with a metal cap is not a good idea at all during thunderstorms. If in a forest, then take shelter under shorter trees. If no shelter is available and you are in an open field, stay far away from all trees.
