  • Louise Roderick - 2015-01-31 09:34

    Just a thought.... Wouldn't it be possible for the schools to start educating children on the dngers of lighning and what to do when they find themselves caught up in a storm? It could be included in classes on life schools etc. I also believe that there are adults as well who could benefit from some community training in this regard as well.

  • Louise Roderick - 2015-01-31 09:39

    Oooops - that should read life skills!

  • Loeto Mocwane - 2015-01-31 11:16
