Tornado Watch

Emergency Preparedness in case of a Tornado

If you are home:
If you have a basement, go there and protect your head and face. If you do not have a basement, go to the center part of your house on the lowest level. A closet or bathroom is usually a good place to seek shelter. Always protect your head and chest from flying objects.

If you are in a vehicle:
STOP! Get out of the vehicle and move away from the tornado’s path at right angle and lie in a hollow or ditch and remember to cover your head and chest.

If a tornado strikes:

  • Do not stay in mobile homes – get out and seek shelter elsewhere. View a mobile home as a vehicle.
  • Do not try to outrun the tornado in your vehicle or on foot – you could lose the race and your life.
  • Do not open windows. Do not stay in large open rooms. Do not stay in areas that have a lot of windows.
