Lightning causes as many as 1,000 deaths and 4,000 injuries each year?
Most of which could be prevented with ample warning!

"Lightning kills and injures more people than floods, tornadoes or hurricanes," according to statistics of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Anyone who spends any kind of recreational time outdoors knows how quickly a storm can approach. Whether you're playing golf or fishing on a boat, not many people know that when you hear or see the first threats of an oncoming storm you're already in immediate danger. When a storm is within 10 miles of you, the danger or lightning strikes are imminent. Up to now most people have relied on visual or auditory clues on approaching storms. Thanks to superior engineering, the
SkyScan Lightning/Storm Detector can take the guesswork out of judging the severity of an approaching thunderstorm.

Surprising Facts:
  • The average lightning stroke is six miles long.
  • An average thunderstorm is 6 to 10 miles wide.
  • Thunderstorms travel at an average speed of 25 mph.
  • On average, thunder can only be heard over a distance of three to four miles.
  • The range that you can hear thunder depends on humidity, terrain, and other factors.
  • With overhanging anvil clouds, the danger of deadly lightning is imminent when the storm's leading edge is within 10 miles.
