Thunderstorm
Thunderstorm

  • A type of storm producing lightning(flashes of light in the sky), thunder (loud noise that follows lightning), rain, and sometimes hail.

  • Can have very heavy rainfall and could cause flooding

  • It is important to stay indoors during a thunderstorm because lightning is attracted to trees, metal, and water outside!


Fun thunderstorm fact
Fun Thunderstorm Fact!

Can you tell how far away a storm is?

  • Yes! You can use thunder to tell how far away a storm is. Next time you see a storm, count the number of seconds between when you see the lightning and hear the thunder. Take the number of seconds and divide by 5 and that will tell you how far away the storm is in miles.

  • For example: If you counted 10 seconds between the lightning and the thunder, the lightning is 2 miles away!

10/5 = 2 miles away!
