Lightning can travel in four ways:
1. From one point to another within the same cloud.
2. From a cloud to clear air.
3. From cloud to cloud.
4. From cloud to ground.
- Cloud to ground lightning is the most deadly.
- It can cause death and serious injury in a matter of seconds.
- Lightning creates thunder. If you hear thunder it means lightning is near and you are in danger. You can be struck ten miles from the cloud that produced the lightning.
