Locals are urged to be cautious.

Stay inside.

During a lightning storm, here is what to do to minimise your risk if you can't find shelter.

1. Move to a lower elevation. Lightning is much more likely to strike objects at higher elevations. Do what you can do get as low as possible.

2. Avoid large open spaces where you are taller than anything else around you, like a golf course or football field.

3. Stay away from trees and light posts.

4. Assume the Lightning crouch sticking your fingers into the soil to earth yourself.
