2. Myth: Your Home is Totally, 100% Safe.
Your home is usually safe — at least safer than outside — but there are still precautions you should make while waiting out a storm indoors. Avoid any objects that conduct electricity, like phones, plumbing, appliances and cables. You should also stay away from windows, since the storm may grow powerful enough to break through the glass. If your home is older, you also run the risk of the lightning seeping through the windows.
