Lightning Protection: Massachusetts
Being a significant site for many historical events from the Pilgrims landing at Plymouth Rock in 1620 to Harvard University (founded in 1636) which is the oldest higher learning institution in the US, many historical buildings are in the state and many of them have lightning rods and lightning protection systems.
According to a 2007 release by the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency, “Every thunderstorm produces lightning and has the potential to produce associated dangers such as tornadoes, destructive winds, hail and flash flooding.”

Human victims of lightning strike (who somehow manage to survive) form strange rash on their skin. The rash looks like tree branches and are usually red in color. These rashes are known as Lichtenberg figures and usually depict the path of the electrical discharge traveling through skin.
