According to an article written on LiveScience, all you have to do to determine how far away lightning is from where you are is to "just count the number of seconds that pass between a flash of lightning and the crack of thunder that follows it, then divide that number by five." They go on to say that "the resulting number will tell you how many miles away you are from where lightning just struck." 

Why is this important to know? Because it's important to know how you would handle storm damage on the inside and outside of your house if it were to happen. Are you in an area that frequently has storms? And what would you do if your house did get damaged by storms? SERVPRO of Decatur has the right tools, technology and people to do the job.
