Lightning is considered quite common during rain. But this common thing often kills people. On Sunday, people lost their lives due to this in some other states including Rajasthan, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh. According to the correspondent of Dainik Jagran, 23 people died in the state in Rajasthan. There 28 were injured. Governor Kalraj Mishra, including PM Narendra Modi, has expressed condolences to the deceased. In Jaipur itself, 16 people have died due to lightning. Of these, 11 died on the watch tower built at Amer Fort in Jaipur when these people were taking selfies here.
About 35 people were present here at the time of the accident. Due to the lightning, many people jumped and fell down the hill. The government has run a rescue mission here. The injured have been admitted to various hospitals. Only a few of these are said to be in critical condition. PM Narendra Modi has expressed his condolences to those killed in these incidents. In one of his tweets, he has written that 'Many people have lost their lives due to lightning in some areas of Rajasthan. This has hurt a lot. I express my deepest condolences to the families of the deceased.
Such phenomena are seen almost everywhere on earth. That is why it is important to know why this happens. Let us tell you that during the rainy days, clouds are often seen moving in the sky. When these clouds collide with the clouds coming from the opposite direction, the water droplets present in them get charged and energy is generated which comes directly towards the earth. Because of this, many times we hear the loud sound of lightning.
However, this sound is heard after some time after lightning. This is because the speed of electricity is much faster than the speed of sound. That's why there is such a difference. It needs a conductor to hit the earth. This work is made easy by the electric poles installed on the earth. In such a situation, if someone comes in their grip, then his life can also be lost.
Its effect on the human body is far more than others. Due to its grip, there is a problem like deepburn in which our tissues get damaged. It also affects our nervous system. A person can also become handicapped due to its grip. Let us tell you that both lightning and lightning are different events, you will be surprised that the incidents of lightning on the earth happen almost every minute. When lightning strikes, the sky's temperature rises to about 15,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The energy received in this way is much hotter than the heat of the sun. It is not possible to predict when and where lightning will occur.
If you talk about the way to avoid this, if you are in the house, then at the time of storm or rain, remove the plugs of your TV, radio, fridge or other electrical things and turn them off. Also avoid using mobile during rain. Do not stand on the floor barefoot. Keep away from electric appliances. Also, stay away from such things which can come in the role of its conductor in case of lightning. Like iron pipes etc. Avoid knowing under a tree or in an open field and try to protect yourself by hiding under a building.
