Typically, there are about 9 injuries for every fatality (only 10% of people die). Some are left with life-long neurological damage.
49 people to date have been seriously injured, and 20 have lost their lives so far through mid-July. This is the second most amount of deaths to date since 2009.
Two fishermen are included in that death toll. Fishermen accounted for more than three times as many fatalities as golfers – and camping and boating each chalked up almost twice as many deaths as golf since 2006.
There are one in a million chances to be struck in a year, but you are increasing your odds when you hear thunder.
