A year or so ago an administrator of a school spotted
a group of children underneath a big oak tree during a thunderstorm.
The teacher was having a lesson on listening to thunder. After getting
the children inside, the teacher and the administrator were discussing
the danger when a bolt hit just outside the school. No one was hurt but
... Did the school have a lightning plan in force? No, but they do now.
The NWS Melbourne office has the distinction of being in the most lightning-prone
part of the USA and have done some
with schools in their area.
