Tornado Safety

The sky is dark. It looks kind of green. There is a wall cloud in the sky and reports of large hail in the area. A tornado warning is heard on the radio and TV. This warning means that a tornado has been sighted. What should you do?  

 

If you are at home, move to the basement. If there is no basement, move to the lowest level of your home. Stay away from windows. Go to an inner hallway or a room without windows. A bathroom or closet is a good choice.  

 

Stay low. Use your arms to protect your head and neck. If you are in a mobile home, get out. Move to a severe weather shelter.

 

If you are in your car, get out of your car. Do not try to outrun a tornado. Tornadoes can quickly change directions. Your car or truck could quickly be tossed through the air.  

 

Take shelter in a nearby building. If there is no time to get indoors, get out of your car. Lie in a ditch or low-lying area away from your car. Use your arms to protect your head and neck.
