Spring is finally here and the days of severe weather will soon be here as well. Weather experts want to spread the message about the dangers of lightning storms. Each year, lightning kills between 75 to 100 people and you don't even have to be outside to be at risk. Some things to remember: Don't forget to unplug all unnecessary appliances in your home, stay off phones with cords and stay off your computer.
