Frequent static shocks
A Bengaluru woman’s query on Twitter is going viral after she asked residents if they have observed an increase in static shocks. Asking if folks in Bengaluru have observed getting static shocks often for the past few days, she said many of her friends have had the same experience.
“Bangalore folks, are you getting static shocks on touching metal since a few days? A crazy number of my friends are experiencing this. I saw a real little spark while opening the door knob,” read her tweet.

Forget door knobs, I'm experiencing static sparks on my blanket when I run my fingers over it. I thought I'm in the process of becoming Thor 🤣.
Well, got a bit sad after knowing that its normal and a lot others are also experiencing Thor transition 😂

For last 4 days – me & my experiencing static shocks and was wondering about the root cause. (South Bengaluru)
It's more surprising that it's happening to others as well.
Any root cause found out yet?
