Virtually all analyses done after a strike has done damage will show some 
element of a properly designed and installed grounding system is not in place.

Don't forget that even if you have a whole house electrical or phone or 
whatever protection in place, that will only take care of energy surges coming 
from the outside lines into the house.  There is a chance that your wiring 
internal to the house can have energy induced into it of sufficient strength to 
zap your stuff.
