Is there lightning close to your premises? If there is lightning striking close to you then it’s a good idea to take some precautionary measures.
First, you need to physically unplug all devices and appliances from the socket.
Once this is done time to put your feet up, literally. If your house is struck by lightning you can protect yourself from ground dispersing current spike by adding extra insulation between you and the floor, one thing you can do is sit down on your sofa couch or lounge and put your feet up on it.
