THE ODDS OF
BEING STRUCK BY LIGHTNING
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What are the odds of being struck by lightning?
In our effort to shed some light on this we found that
the odds of being struck by lightning in any given year are about 1/500,000.
Your chances of being struck and not surviving are
about 1/2,500,000 so 4/5 times you will survive a lightning strike.
If you live a long healthy life your odds over the
course of your life are about 1/3,000 of being hit by lightning.
Keep in mind that these numbers are based purely of
statistics with no regard for the Darwin factor.
For people like you and me the odds should go down
significantly as those less bright people that that put up their umbrellas and
hide under the tallest tree during a lightning storm inflate the overall odds.
