How Far Away Is That Storm?

Men and women in the outdoor world have 1 thing in common–they like to venture away from society where no cellphone service exists! This adventurous lifestyle can become dangerous when unexpected weather arises, leaving you stuck in a lightning storm or flash flood.

Know how far away that storm is so you can react correctly!

To judge how far away a storm is you will need to watch for lightning.  When you start to see lightning, time how long it takes (in seconds) until you hear thunder.  For every 5 seconds you count, add 1 mile distance from the storm.  For example, if you count to 10 seconds, the storm is 2 miles away from you.
