#LightningSafety QA No.14 #spreadtheword and #savelives #lightningeducation Q: How often does lightning strike the ground? A: On average, about 1/3 of lightning reaches the ground and the other 2/3 stays in the cloud. However, the actual ratio within each thunderstorm can vary.

The lightning delay is a bummer, but this cell in Seneca #SC is too close for comfort, and it could produce a lightning strike near or within Memorial Stadium at any time #GTvsCLEM #LightningSafety #SafetyFirst
Georgia Tech-Clemson lightning suspension now extended to 6:45 p.m. Delay started just after 5 p.m.

Realized a new fear I have with lightning storms—worrying the power will go out mid-shave. It’s like not putting the mower blades down all the way so I could just knock the weeds down and look like I put in some effort tonight.. #shavinginthedark #getherdone #LightningSafety

Silver linings to the #GTvsCLEM lightning delay: The large amount of #LightningSafety and lightning detection science/data that was shared during an NCAA football game... (1/)

Final thought before I "sign off" & pack up my house 😂Thank you to @ksugiuraajc for opening the platform, & @WxDiz @JessicaArnoldy @COweatherman & @nsj for the "virtual townhall panel" regarding NCAA Football and #LightningSafety. I appreciated the discussion, y'all! 💛#GTvsCLEM

Twitter buried this, but.... Eyewitness lightning account from Memorial Stadium around 5:06pm #GTvsCLEM #LightningSafety
Replying to @FTRSBlog
Update: we are very high up and definitely just saw lighting. If you’re here, be safe and smart please.

Additional #GTvsCLEM lightning data... #LightningSafety
Our system does indeed detect cloud to cloud as well as ground based activity - we did detect a bolt at 6.12 miles during the game

RadarScope only shows cloud-to-ground #lightning. In-cloud lightning also counts. Individual universities can be more restrictive too. #LightningSafety plans need to account for evacuating the stands and field and bigger stadiums take longer.

I've chased tornadoes in my career, but it's lightning I have the most "fear"/respect for... Lightning can strike 10+ miles from its parent cloud, and often "from out of the blue". #LightningSafety is paramount for athletes AND fans, especially in sporting venues (NFL, NCAA, etc)
Honest reflection: safety of everyone is number one priority and lightning is extremely dangerous. I respect the decision to delay the game. Silver lining… perhaps this will empty the stadium of a large amount of Clemson fans

When thunder roars, go indoors! Sitting in open seating in a stadium when #lightning is nearby is a potential recipe for disaster. #LightningSafety

There’s this: ncaa.org/health-and-safety/l… I work with several of the people who helped develop these #LightningSafety guidelines. Here is a paper that looks at lightning impacts on college football games: vaisala.com/sites/default/fi…
