Yes, lightnings on a heavy great storms should not be dismiss lightly that one will not be strike by this terrifying weather shocker though you are confident that you are not “alone tall and conductor” on the plane of target of lightning; for lightning strikes not only thrice but any time and many times randomly.
News about being struck by a strong lightning and that leaves the victim automatically dead on the spot is really very scary but what is more scary is the terrifying reality that we could not do something about it to abort or avert such lightning incidents because of the reason that it is a natural occurrences or can be considered a natural calamity. Yes, we can avert natural calamities like the effects of typhoons and earthquakes; that we could prepare ahead but what about lightning that strikes anytime in the middle of storm treating everyone equal to its sight. Whether it may be trees, animals, infrastructure and humans; it will hit whenever it wishes to hit.
In the Philippines, there are many cases of lighting fatalities including students, farmers and other ordinary innocent people mercilessly killed by a lightning during a heavy rains or during a storm but no single one of the victims has received justice for the injustice acts of nature like lightning or even this so called “god” was questioned and persecuted to his ruthless acts if he does exist and have control over the activities of the weather but was tolerated for his egoistical sadistic and evil management over the creations treating every creatures as a mere a non-sense pests that should not be given mercy.
Does the governments of the world do something about it now that there is reported advanced weather controlling technology that could manipulate the weather which only proves that the being called “god” could not be existing at all?
But fortunately recent attacks of lightning in the Philippines have only cause injuries to nine Filipinos. The recent lightning attacks happens the night of May 7,2011 at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) wherein lightning struck a park Philippine Airlines Airbus 320 plane where the nine workers of the Philippine Airlines took shelter from the heavy rains as the reports said. The nine workers are now currently out of danger as current reports said.
With increasing lightning incidents and deaths cause by lightning yearly on every country and particularly in the Philippines, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), should do something about it to reduce and eliminate such not so good incidents. Lightning should not be dismissed lightly because it is highly dangerous.
