Can A Person Be Struck By Lightning On A Porch?

In this episode, we take a look at what areas are safe to watch a thunderstorm from.  A question was asked about the safety of watching lightning from under a porch attached to a house.  They wondered if it was grounded just like the porch.  After researching a bit, I found that it is no more safe than being in a tent, a shed, or under a tree.  Take a look at this vlog and find out why it’s not safe to be outside when you hear the roar of thunder.
