In my country, there is a popular belief that during a thunderstorm, windows should be closed because of the risk of ball lightning.
The answers to this other question explain that ball lightning “is a well-documented phenomenon”. Although, I can't find any statistics showing how often a ball lightning occurs, nor how many people were actually killed by it when being inside.
There is also this question which talks about the slight risk that open windows present in a context of an ordinary lightning striking an object inside the house, but ball lightning is not mentioned.
Is it an actual risk to leave windows open during a thunderstorm in a context of ball lightning? How big is the risk of being killed or injured by a ball lightning entering the house (especially compared to the risk of being hit by a car when crossing the road ?
