Warning Signs Before Getting Struck

I’m currently reading a book entitled Love Warps The Mind A Little by John Dufresne. While the book is an original love story, it referenced lightning – which caught me off guard and sparked my interest.

The book reads, “I read somewhere that you get a warning before you’re hit by lightning. Your hair feels like it’s standing on edge and your skin tingles.”

Is this true?

According to the National Weather Service, it is.

Sometimes there are a few seconds of warning before a lightning strike. Your hair may stand on end, your skin may tingle, light metal objects may vibrate, or you may hear a crackling sound, the National Weather Service says.

I guess this author did his research.
