UAE An important warning from the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority for individuals while they are at home when there is thunder

The National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority advised individuals while they are inside the house to follow some guidelines when there is thunder, the most important of which are:

■ Do not leave the house unless absolutely necessary. ■ Keep away from glass windows and doors. ■ Do not allow children to play outside the house. ■ Disconnect the power supply, and turn off the water network in the event of hurricanes. ■ Avoid showering as much as possible, because plumbing connections in the bathroom can conduct electric charges from lightning strikes. ■ Use mobile and wireless phones, as they are safe in the home.
