With Spring, comes tornadoes and other strong storms
With Spring, comes tornadoes and other strong storms. Tornadoes can destroy well-made structures, uproot trees and send objects through the air like deadly missiles and they can happen anywhere.
Here are some tips to keep you and your loved ones safe.
- Identify a save place in your home where family and pets will gather during a tornado: a basement, storm cellar or an interior room on the lowest floor with no windows.
- In a high rise building, if you don't have have enough time to go to the lowest floor, pick a hallway in the center of the building.
- In a mobile home, choose a safe place in a nearby sturdy building. If your mobile home park has a designated shelter, make it your safe place. No mobile home is safe in a tornado.
Know the difference between a Tornado Watch & Warning:
- Watch means a tornado is possible.
- Warning: means a tornado is already occurring or will occur soon. GO TO YOUR SAFE PLACE IMMEDIATELY.
