paddle, your risk of death by car is greater that day than your risk of death by lightning.

And your method of comparison is NOT the way risk of death is set up. I say this as one who has had to wade through many, many studies of risk of death by suicide. The risk is stated as the number of deaths per year per 100.000.

Even in Florida, NOAA exaggerates the risk of death by lightning. It doesn't really matter how risk is calculated. NOAA makes it seem as if the risk of death by lightning is quite high, and it isn't.
