Yes I've heard people losing their computers and other electical appliance because of electrical storms. My father told me before he retired he was an electrical engineer.

I use a surge protector on all my computers and I also regularly back up my hard drive.

Opal,
You have good habits! Another thing people should not use during a lightning storm is the telephone land line and cell phone.

I had always heard about not using the telephone during an electrical storm but had thought it was an "old wives tale." Apparently not! Thanks for the great information, I'll be sure to unplug my computer next time we have thunder and lightning!

Maui Girl, glad I was able to share some useful information.
