      I am surprised there are not many threads on this. I just had very loud thunder strikes in my area and I read that thunder is 120 dB. Is this true?

      I mean we all know there is mild thunder and then those very loud ones that sound like a bomb just hit. Are these not to worry about?

      Thank you for sharing.

      I will make sure to wear earplugs or Peltor muffs, the next time thunderstorms are in the forecast...

      This means you can't plan/anticipate them? :(

      Definitely worry about that. Just pop some earplugs in if you're outside in a storm, and seek shelter.

      Thunder is quite loud. Some weeks back I could hear it in my bedroom, with my foam earplugs in. I was glad that they were in, and the storm was some distance away as well. Yes, nature is quite powerful.
