Hi. Yesterday lightening struck the house across the street and blew up the two Gas water heaters located in the attic. The house was gone in minutes. We live on a hill and lightening is common here. Our water heaters are also in the attic. As you might imagine, we are concerned. We aren't crazy about water heaters in the attic to begin with. Are there any options to moving the water heaters, for example, to the garage. Maybe we should buy an instant water heating unit...don't those eliminate the need for water heaters, or, do you think lightening rods are the way to go. Other options? Or, are we overly concerned?

Best Regards.
