When Lightning Risk is Highest

This slightly complicated graphic carries an important message. While lightning is most frequent where it is raining, people aren't as exposed to lightning because they are indoors sheltering from the rain. So, the highest risk of being struck by lightning is as the storm gets near and as it moves away (the red area). 

If thunder roars, go indoors!!
