Tornado Safety Tips
Tornado's although not very common can be very unpredictable, as well as extremely destructive. There is no fool proof plan to guarantee safety during a tornado, but there are actions that can be taken to increase you're odds of staying safe and injury free. Being prepared is the most important step you can take. Having a plan and a place to take shelter is the first thing that should be planned out. Followed by having supplies ready such as fresh batteries, radio, and a emergency kit. Be aware of the weather especially if thunderstorms are in the forecast. A tornado can form without warning and rapidly at times. Some warning signs include, a dark/green sky, a large low lying dark cloud, hail, and a loud noise similar to a freight train. When taking shelter you want to find a basement or the lowest lying room without windows. Make sure to always protect your head, and cover yourself in a blanket or sleeping bag. Just staying prepared is always the number one safety step.
