Insane New Graphics Created By The Weather Channel
I just wanted to add some safety advice here for the downed power lines. He goes into it little, but never explained how to properly move away from downed lines if you are in fact within 40ft. The ground could still be energized and will want to send current through your legs, this is called “Step Potential”. To minimize this happening, you need to shuffle away from the site keeping both feet in contact with the ground. Alternatively, you can keep both feet together and literally hop to safety. Shuffling allows you to separate your feet, but you are still grounded. Hopping with your heels together creates one point of contact which avoids having the current pass in and out of you.
