What is Lightning

Lightning is an electrostatic discharge that occurs during a thunderstorm. A discharge within a single cloud or between two clouds is called a flash. If lightning hits the ground, it’s called a strike.

3 Common Dangers of Lightning Striking Your House

  • Fire: A lightning strike can start a fire on the roof or in your attic and may also cause an electrical fire if it reaches the wiring in your home. A roof or electrical fire can produce a large amount of fire and smoke damage throughout your home.
  • Power Surge: Another concern of a lightning strike is that it may cause a surge through electrical wiring and systems. This could damage electronics and appliances or even cause sparks that start a fire or produce smoke.
  • Shockwave: The intensity of the lightning strike can produce a powerful shockwave that damage concrete, brick, cinder block, plaster and stone and even break glass or crack your foundation.

The Danger of Lightning Striking Trees

Lightning strikes to trees and other vegetation can cause fire and smoke damage and even start wildfires. In addition to the risk of fire spreading to your house, the shockwave from a lightning strike can break branches or even knock over the entire tree. This can damage roofs siding and may lead to water damage during severe rainstorms.
