WHAT'S IT LIKE TO BE STRUCK BY LIGHTNING-BUB-SOTVO


ALL NEW THIS MORNING ---

WITH ALL THE LIGHTNING RELATED DEATHS AND INJURIES LATELY ----

NBC-2 IS TAKING A RARE LOOK INSIDE A HIGH-VOLTAGE LAB. TO SEE WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE STRUCK BY LIGHTNING. AND HOW YOU CAN PROTECT YOURSELF IN A SEVERE STORM.

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS.

nats of lightning hitting mannequinn, guy shows damage white flash JEFF ROSSEN: Hi, good morning, and coming up this morning on TODAY - what is it like to be struck by lightning? We have rare access right now inside a U.S. government lab - a high voltage lab where they are testing lightning and they are about to show us what a bolt looks like. Watch this! It is loud and it is fast. What is it like to be right there? We are going to show you. Plus, tips on how to protect you and your family from all of these pop up thunderstorms we're seeing this summer. All of that coming up this morning, on TODAY.

THANKS, JEFF.

WE'RE GOING TO GO AHEAD AND GIVE YOU SOME GREAT LIGHTNING SAFETY TIPS RIGHT NOW.

ALWAYS REMEMBER, WHEN THERE IS A STORM, HEAD FOR SHELTER.

NOW, YOU MAY NOT KNOW THIS, BUT EXPERTS WITH THE WEATHER CHANNEL SAY THERE ARE THREE MAIN WAYS LIGHTNING ENTERS HOMES AND BUILDINGS:

A DIRECT STRIKE, THROUGH WIRES OR PIPES AND THROUGH THE GROUND.

ONCE IN A STRUCTURE, THE LIGHTNING CAN TRAVEL THROUGH THE ELECTRICAL, PHONE, PLUMBING, RADIO AND YOUR TV.

LIGHTNING CAN ALSO TRAVEL THROUGH ANY METAL WIRES OR BARS IN CONCRETE WALLS OR FLOORING.

PHONE USE IS THE LEADING CAUSE OF INDOOR LIGHTNING INJURIES IN THE UNITED STATES. Return to index of stories...
