AUTOMOBILE   HOMEOWNERS   BUSINESS   TOWING   FARM

In 2014, insurers paid approximately 100,000 lightning claims.  The average value of these claims was $7,400.  This is 25% higher than previous year due to nature of and cost of new computers and televisions.

How can we as residents of Arkansas protect ourselves  from these claims?

    -Lightning Rods - they don't protect from the strike, but drive it safely away from your home if properly installed.

    -Surge protectors - though not fool proof, they can prevent many potential issues from a lightning strike.  

    -Stay away from plumbing (toilets, sinks, and faucets) which make good conductors.

    -Stay off the phone - 4% to 5% of people stuck by lightning were talking on their corded phones


Remember if you hear thunder it's time to go inside.
