Hello experts.  I have a question about how much protection is provided for the internet cable against lightning strikes by relatively high end consumer grade surge protectors.  My habit is to unplug the surge protector in a lightning storm for maximum protection, but unscrewing the coax is rather tedious and I usually don't bother with it.  I am assuming that lightening is the only kind of surge one would have to worry about from the cable, but if I'm wrong please let me know.
