• Thunder can still strike from a distant cloud (This is commonly called a ”bolt from the blue”).
• Keep hydrated: ensure you drink lots of water from protected sources.
• Poultry producers should note that broilers are sensitive to temperature variations and therefore need to be checked regularly and adjustment made.
• Farmer with crops that still need significant amounts of water should plan v ith irrigation in mind. NB: Pfumvudza plots arc easy to irrigate even by hand.
• Remember when you are dose enough to hear thunder less than 30 seconds after you see lightning then you are dose enough to get struck. It is safer to seek shelter in a closed building when this occurs.
