Sunday began Lightning Safety Awareness Week from the National Weather Service.
There have been seven lightning deaths this year so far, including one in Michigan.
Here are some things they want you to remember.
When thunder roars, go indoors, because if you hear thunder that means lightning is close enough to strike you and you should move to safe shelter.
You should also stay there at least 30 minutes after you hear the last sound of thunder.
When indoors, you should stay off corded phones, computers and other equipment that puts you in direct contact with electricity, avoid plumbing, including sinks, baths and faucets and stay away from windows and doors and off of porches.
