If there is a severe storm, it's best just to turn off your TV and other home theater equipment that are on. If your electrical is up to code by a certified home inspector, then there's nothing to worry about.
We live dead centre of a town that has just had a huge refurb..the electricity has gone on and off as a matter of course over the last two years due to all the works. Our RCD was constantly tripping, which is why we had the whole house protection unit installed (apparently).

No other appliances have ever been damaged...plasma or OLED tvs, power amps, av receivers, kitchen appliances big or small.

The only things that were affected were the JL Audio Fathoms. They’re on different power strips on opposite sides of the room too, so the circuitry is obviously extremely sensitive as this is now the second time they’ve been fried.
