If you live in an area plagued by thunderstorms and lightning, you may find this video from KF7P ("Signal Search") helpful in designing a system to protect your amateur radio equipment.
KF7P shows us what he did to increase the survivability of his ham radio station. It's best to be over prepared than under protected.
While my QTH doesn't experience the weather extremes experienced by KF7P, I do find a few thunderstorms often knock out our locally generated power when lightning strikes a utility pole in my neighborhood (Hawaii Island). I've always made it a practice to detach and ground all antenna feed lines when I'm not on the air.
