HOW CLOSE IS THE LIGHTNING AND IS IT COMING MY WAY? You can tell how close you are to a lightning strike by counting the seconds between seeing the flash and hearing the thunder. For every five seconds you count, the lightning is one mile away. If you see a flash and instantly hear the thunder, the lightning strike is very close. Take shelter immediately. A hand bearing compass can be used to determine if you are in the path of a storm. By observing the storm’s ground flashes and using a series of bearings, you can plot the approach of a thunderstorm. If the bearing of the flashes doesn’t change, the average storm is heading toward you.
