Is it true that you can use thunder to tell how far away a storm is?

Yes, you can use thunder to tell how far away a storm is.

Next time you see a storm, count the number of seconds between when you see the lightning and hear the thunder.

Take the number of seconds and divide by 5 and that will tell you how far away the storm is in miles.
