Ashley writes to The Doctors about an email she received warning her not to do the dishes or shower during a thunderstorm because the lightning can shock you if it strikes and sends electricity through the pipes and water into your home. Ashley wants to know if this is true.
The Doctors are shocked to find out that this is true according to The National Weather Service! Electricity can travel through the plumbing and wiring and a bolt could hit your water pipes. While The Doctors don’t know how common this is, they have seen firsthand the terrible burns caused by getting struck by lightning. Plastic surgeon expert Dr. Andrew Ordon explains the injury occurs where the electricity exits your body because the current wants to get grounded.
Even though a lot of people today have plastic pipes, OB/GYN expert Dr. Nita Landry explains that they could also conduct electricity because they could be hooked up to metal fixtures. She says how your home is grounded changes how badly it can affect you and people can ask their electrician about their risks.
