Why does the power go out when there are storms?

    The power goes out because something knocks out the power lines–usually a tree or a tree limb that has been hit by lightning, has been blown over by wind, or falls because it is too heavy with ice–or lightning strikes a an electricity control unit (those big boxes you see on street corner…I’m not actually sure what the technical name for one is…maybe someone else on here knows?) and fries the equipment inside.
