Should I unplug a PC during a thunderstorm?

When I was a kid, my parents would always unplug electronics during electrical storms. No one I know does that anymore, but a string of thunderstorms that passed my area this afternoon made me wonder whether we don’t do it now because it is unnecessary or if we just got lazy about it over time. I assume there is some level of built-in protection in a modern PC, but I’m really just guessing. Does it make sense to unplug modern computers during thunderstorms or is that a remnant of an earlier era?
That depends on the storm and where you are located. Usually I do, but that's me
