Tornado Safety Tips

When a tornado watch is announced, it means conditions are present for a tornado.

Keep a radio/TV tuned for further information, and gather emergency supplies.

When a Tornado Warning is issued, it means a tornado has been sighted or is imminent. Take shelter immediately.

Avoid windows.

Do not remain in a trailer or mobile home if a tornado is approaching. Take cover elsewhere.
If you are at work:

Go to an interior hallway on the lowest floor, or a designated shelter.

Avoid windows.

Follow instructions of authorities/teachers.

Stay out of structures with wide free-span roofs like auditoriums and gyms.

Seek cover in a nearby building, or lie flat in a ditch or ravine.
