A thunderstorm is a storm with lightning and thunder. It’s produced by a cumulonimbus cloud, usually producing gusty winds, heavy rain and sometimes hail.
- One must check the weather forecast for a thunderstorm before going out.
- Outdoor activities must be postponed if there are signs of a developing thunderstorm such as darkening skies, flashes, or strong winds. This will help us to avoid being caught in dangerous situations.
- One should not bathe during a thunderstorm because the lighting effect when it falls over a building or residence, can carry electric charge, and the body, when bathed, becomes a good conductor of electricity, resulting in an electric shock.
