What I had learned about electricity is that when particles like protons or electrons are electrically charged by friction or “lost” by a natural “blockade” and then they make electricity. Electricity I also learned that voltage is and electrical force that pushes electrons which “rides” with currents that turn on your lights. Power surges can be caused by lightning strikes which can harm anything plugged into the wall which is why you would use a surge protector. Benjamin Franklin demonstrated that lightning is electricity charged storms. Lightning is also the most deadly phenomena know to man. The bolt temperatures are hotter than the sun’s surface.
