IT’S MONSOON SEASON: SOME LIGHTNING SAFETY TIPS

As we move into the depths of summer, residents of the Morongo Basin can expect summer thunderstorms. Reporter Anthony Abraria offers these safety tips to protect your home from lightning strikes…

According to the National Weather Service, every thunderstorm produces lightning which is a direct threat to most buildings. A whole-house/building surge protector is the best starting point for reducing the risk of damage from lightning. For best results, the protection should extend beyond the whole-building surge protection. Install additional protection for important or expensive electronic equipment. This should include localized surge protection for power cords to the equipment and any telephone and cable/satellite TV lines connecting to the equipment.
