Frequent cloud to ground lightning is occurring with these storms.

shelter inside a building or vehicle.

If on or near Flaming Gorge... get out of the water and move indoors
or inside a vehicle. Remember... lightning can strike out to 15 miles
from the parent thunderstorm. If you can hear thunder... you are
close enough to be struck by lightning. Move to safe shelter now. Do
not be caught on the water in a thunderstorm.
