If you ever find yourself stuck outside in a thunderstorm and there is no shelter whatsoever then here are a few things you can do. If you are in a forest you should find smaller trees and hide by them. Make sure you are not in an empty field alone or by a big tree. Try to stay away from metal things and if you are with people stay away from each other, because even though both people and metal do not attract electricity they are both good conductors for electricity.
