      Oh dear thedjsaidr3wind, I really have no idea! I know that a lot of people run and plug their tvs out when they hear thunder and i think they do this to stop the electrical current being brought into the house from the ariel as it’s often the highest point on the house. But i think that if lightening wants to get into your house it’ll find a way and it’s better that it blows up a tv or computer than a person! But saying that, I am not an expert on this sort of stuff 🙁
