Suggest three measures to protect ourselves from lightning.

 

Answer

We can protect ourselves by

  1. Open spaces are very unsafe during lightning. If a person is in an open space, he must rush to a house or some safe building which is covered in case of lightning.
  2. We should avoid raising an umbrella over our head during lightning. This is because lightning may strike the top end metal rod of the umbrella and then harm us.
  3. The TV antennas and dish antennas are prone to lightning strikes.Hence, we should switch off our TVs during frequent lightning or they may get burnt.
