Abstract

All thunderstorms are detrimental and can be associated with a number of hazards. Heavy rains resulting from these storms lead to flash flooding that causes a number of fatalities in our communities and lightning is another by-product of thunderstorm that is produced from every thunderstorm and causes at least 80 fatalities and 300 injuries per year (NOAA, 2015). This study used conceptual research design in pursuit of understanding the root causes of thunderstorm and lighting and their mitigation measures for public safety more especially those who work in the open places. A specific reference was made to N8 road in South Africa where six fatalities were reported in March 2015. The study used extensive literature review (secondary data) for data collection in order to conceptualise thunderstorms and lightning and their subsequent consequences. The study ended with reduction measures to be taken by the public during thunderstorms to ensure safety. Authorities are also urged to educate the public about the risks of thunderstorms taking into cognisance the myths borne by the same public about lightning.
