Lightning can strike and be dangerous

Jul 22, 2016

Summertime in many parts of the world means thunderstorms. And with thunder comes the danger of lightning. While being struck by lightning is often thought to be rare, it can happen, and can cause permanent injury or death. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show "Take Care," hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with John Jensenius, a meteorologist and lightning safety specialist with the National Weather Service and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care," WRVO's health and wellness show Saturday at 6:30 a.m. and Sunday at 6:30 p.m. Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
