Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Ask Andy LIGHTNING Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Chet age 11. of Emmaus. for his What exactly causes A raging thunderhead is a powerhouse of which is why we call it an electric storm. It can generate enough power to light a city and maybe someday its energy can be tamed to do useful work for us. Thunderstorms seem even where they happen most often. But at any day or hundreds of them are raging here and there around the globe. The electric energy in a thunderhead is the activity of those tiny particles charged with negative electricity that normally swarm around the atomic nucleus. Each atom has a quota of positively charged protons in its nucleus. Normally the number of electrons equals the number of protons and the atom has a balanced quota of postitive and negative charges. Positive and negative electricity attract each somewhat like the opposite north and south poles of two magnets. A normal atom is electrically neutral and its nucleus likes to keep things this way. The protons locked within the nucleus cannot leave home. When a footloose electron strays the lopsided atom becomes a positive ion. seeking to regain its electrical balance. And electrons often behave like frantically dashing from atom to atom. When ions have extra naturally they have surplus charges of negative electricity. When a substance loses large numbers of lightfooted it is left with a positive charge When either of these situations becomes the surplus charges must be or discharged. In a small way. this happens on a frosty morning when you touch something and a spark flies. In a big way. the same thing happens when lightning flashes from a The storm cloud is a raging whirl of hot and dry and damp regions. In the wild countless electrons are stripped from their atoms creating pockets of negative and positive ions. When these electrical charges build to a they must be discharged. In a the discharged electricity becomes a fiery strong enough to sunder a mighty tree and start a forest fire. The flash lasts less than a though several streaks may zoom along the same path. The first flash cuts a wavy path through the turbulent cloud and other flashy discharges follow the leader. Heat from the fierv flash forces the moist.

Actually it expands in an airy explosion with a roaring clap of thunder. Summer thunderstorms happen so we may tend to forget that they can be dangerous. Every year many people are injured by some of them fatally. So let's beware. The safest shelter is a building armed with proper lightning conductors. A parked car also is fairly so long as you do not touch the radio or metal fixtures. The safest part of a forest is under one of its smallest trees. Tall trees attract so do hilltops. Swimming is unsafe and running through the storm outdoors can be downright dangerous. Even when indoors it is wise to avoid electrical gadgets such as TV. and stay away from the water pipes.
