Could I be hit by lightning during a hurricane?

In Antigua, it is possible to be struck by lightning during a hurricane, especially if you are outdoors and exposed to the storm. Lightning is a common occurrence during thunderstorms, and hurricanes often bring with them strong thunderstorms and lightning strikes.

If you are outdoors during a hurricane, it is important to seek shelter indoors or in a vehicle as soon as possible. Avoid seeking shelter under trees, as they can attract lightning strikes. If you are unable to find a safe shelter, crouch down low with your feet close together and your head lowered, minimizing your contact with the ground.

It is important to take lightning strikes seriously and to take appropriate precautions to reduce your risk of being struck. If you are struck by lightning, seek medical attention immediately.
