4 Ways To Stay Safe During The Storm Wherever You Are

April 7, 2017

If you are in a car during a tornado:

1. Never try to drive faster than a tornado in a car or truck. Tornadoes can change direction quickly and can lift up a car or truck and toss it through the air.



2. Get out of the car immediately and take shelter in a nearby building.



3. If there is no time to get indoors, get out of the car and lie in a ditch or low-lying area away from the vehicle. Be aware of the potential for flooding.

 

 

 

If you are outdoors during a tornado:

 

1. If possible, get inside a building.



2. If shelter is not available or there is no time to get indoors, lie in a ditch or low-lying area or crouch near a strong building.



3. Look out for flood waters which may also fill low areas. Use your arms to protect head and neck.

 

 

If you are at home during a tornado:


1. Go to a windowless interior room on lowest level of your house. Go to a storm cellar or basement if your house has one. If there is no basement, go to an inner hallway or a smaller inner room without windows, such as a bathroom or closet.



2. Please stay away from the windows. 



3. Go to the center of the room. Stay away from corners because they tend to attract debris.



4. Get under a piece of sturdy furniture such as a workbench or heavy table or desk and hold on to it. 



5. Use your arms to protect head and neck.
