Good information 👏👍👌 more  
One should not use Mobile phones, when in open during thunder clouds because all mobile phones seek signals from nearby towers and are vulnerable to Lightning. So Be careful. more  
These are some lucid, intelligent, and perspicuous suggestions to be followed in case of thunderstorms. Many people may recall how 4 gentlemen taking shelter under a tree in Gurgaon were hit by lightening. Many still don't know this and intuitively seek shelter wherever they can. We must make others aware of these suggestions for it may save their lives. One suggestion I'd like to add is - Avoid use of mobile phones in case you are in an open area during thunderstorm. more
