Q
Some Natural Phenomena

Question:

The weather department has predicted that a thunderstorm is likely to occur on a certain day. Suppose you have to go out on that day. Would you carry an umbrella? Explain

Answer:

No, one should not carry an umbrella during a thunderstorm. The thunderstorm is accompanied by lighting and because of electric discharge from the cloud, the charges might travel from the cloud to the metal rod on the umbrella and might cause an electric shock to the person carrying it. So, it is not safe to carry an umbrella during lighting.
