According to the National Weather Service, every thunderstorm produces lightning. On average, 300 people are injured and 80 people are killed each year in the U.S. by lightning.
"Thunderstorms are a dangerous weather event and their destructive capabilities should not be taken lightly," said Julie Rochman, IBHS president and CEO.

The National Weather Service in Reno issued a severe thunderstorm warning for extreme southeastern Lassen County and extreme southeastern Plumas County in Northern California. This includes the city of Chilcoot until 3:30 PM PDT, Monday.
Fire crews responded to at least five roadside spot fires along Highway 36 in Susanville.
July 26, 2010 — Lassen County fire personnel are responding to a fire near the junction between Highway 395 and Highway 36, which closed Highway 36 in both directions for a brief period. Law enforcement units were seen directing traffic in both directions as of 1 p.m. on Monday, July 26.
Former High Desert State Prison Sergeant Todd Posch was recently sentenced to 30 days of jail time, 300 hours of community service and three years of formal probation.
He will likely spend his 30 days in a non-jail setting such as house arrest because of his background in law enforcement.
