As a duly trained Computer Engineer, I took many an Electrical Engineering course, so I immediately spotted the flaw in this so-called “expert”s statement:
“In one volt of lightning you can get up to 30 million volts of current going through, which would pretty much devastate your house when you think that an outlet only has 110 volts,” Weik added.

Bah. Nevermind. Looks like the article’s author goofed. The record has been stricken.
