tornado (2)

Get to the basement or center of your house away from windows, or go to another building in the event of a tornado.

Thick blankets or a mattress should be used for protection since flying debris is the greatest danger.

If you hear a tornado warning for your area or a loud, continuous roar or rumble, which doesn’t fade in a few seconds like thunder, DO NOT go outside to look

Keep your family together and wait for emergency personnel to arrive.

Carefully render aid to those who may be injured.

Stay away from power lines and puddles with wires in them; they may still be carrying electricity!

Watch your step to avoid broken glass, nails, and other sharp objects.

Stay out of any heavily damaged houses or buildings; they could collapse at any time.

Do not use matches or lighters, in case of leaking natural gas pipes or fuel tanks nearby.

Remain calm and alert, and listen for information and instructions from emergency crews or local officials.
