If a bolt of lightning hits your PC directly I can guarantee it will break if that's what you're asking.

If a lightning storm is bad enough to make you wonder if you should turn your PC off, you should probably just turn your PC off.

A surge protector won't do a whole lot in a direct hit scenario. Neither will being off for that matter
Of course Evil's afoot. If it had switched to the metric system it'd be up to a meter by now
