Storm Safety Tornadoes
Tornado Safety... It's Important!
During any life threatening situation, it's very important that you know effective ways of staying safe and out of harms way.
When there is a tornado, stay inside! Go into a room where there are no windows on the lowest level of your house, like a basement. If you don't have a basement, an inner hallway or small inner room without windows, such as a bathroom or closet.
Go to the center of the room and stay away from corners. Get under something sturdy like a table, workbench, or piece of furniture. Use your arms to cover your head and neck.
School or Work!
If you're at work or school, avoid any wide-roofed areas.
On the Road!
Never try to drive faster than a tornado, they can change direction quickly. Get out of the car right away and find shelter in a nearby building. If you can't get indoors, go under the car or in a ditch or any low-lying area away from the vehicle.
