Keeping this in consideration, are there thunderstorms in Los Angeles?
The North American Monsoon can bring occasional thunderstorms and high humidity to Los Angeles in the summer and early fall.
how far is the lightning from me right now? Make it happen: After you see a flash of lightning, count the number of seconds until you hear the thunder. (Use the stop watch or count "One-Mississippi, Two-Mississippi, Three-Mississippi," etc.) For every 5 seconds the storm is one mile away. Divide the number of seconds you count by 5 to get the number of miles.
Also, does lightning go through concrete?
Yes, lightning commonly causes structural damage. So-called cold bolts of lightning, following their way to the ground through concrete (which is a better conductor than air) often provide enough force to fragment the concrete. This sideflash produces an explosive effect in the concrete.
Is lightning dangerous indoors?
Lightning is a very dangerous force that, yes, can even reach you indoors if you're in contact with the telephone or plumbing. Lightning has the ability to strike a house or near a house and impart an electrical charge to the metal pipes used for plumbing.
