Although most homes nowadays are built to absorb a lightning strike, there are still many homes that are not equipped to withstand a lightning strike. Either way, what happens after the lightning may be the most frightening.
It is important to get out of your house after lightning has struck the home. Lightning can fray wiring and cause potential fire dangers. It is important to call the fire department to inspect your home if your house was directly hit by lightning. If there are no visible dangers, then it is wise to have a professional electrician investigate if there are any potential hazards.
Lightning can damage electrical systems, burn out circuit boards and damage appliances and electronics, especially computers. In order to save yourself and your belongings, you should unplug your telephones and computers from electrical outlets and avoid doors and windows.
