Although it can be fascinating to watch outside your window, lightning can cause severe damage not only to people caught outside in a thunderstorm, but also to your residential property. A bolt of lightning can produce up to 40,000 amperes of current with a temperature of over 90,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightning not only kills over 100 people across the United States every year, but it also causes billions of dollars in property damage when bolts strike homes.
