Residents cautioned on lightning strikes
    2018-06-14  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

AS the city has entered the rain season, heavy rain has not only brought a lot of inconveniences to people’s lives, but also increased the risk of lightning strikes.

From June 6 to yesterday, the city’s emergency center received seven reports of lightning strikes, the Shenzhen Economic Daily reported.

According to statistics released by the Shenzhen Center for Prehospital Care, the city has received a total of 75 reports of lightning strikes since January, and within the week from June 6 to 13 there were seven injuries sustained from lightening.

The center specifically reminds residents to pay attention to their safety when going outdoors and to stay away from objects or places that attract lightning.

It is advised that residents avoid voltage transformers, bundled aerial cables, trees, large billboards, trees that are wrapped in wires and wire poles. Residents should also avoid wading through puddles.

If someone is struck by lightning, it is necessary to take emergency measures before rescuing the victim or calling 120 for professional medical assistance.

Rain and storms are forecast for the rest of the week.
