Sample message:

Do you know what to do if a tornado touched down in the area?

In the event of a tornado, here are some tornado safety rules to keep you and your family safe:

1) In general, get as low as you can. A basement below ground level or the lowest floor of a building offers the greatest safety. Put as many walls between yourself and the outside as possible. Avoid windows at all cost!

2) Tornadoes could be obscured by rainfall or come at nighttime. Do not wait until you see or hear the tornado, it may be too late.

3) If you reside in a mobile home, it is essential to evacuate well ahead of the approaching severe weather and seek shelter in a sturdy building. In the absence of nearby shelter options, find the nearest ditch, low spot, or underground culvert. Once there, lie flat on the ground and cover your head with your hands to enhance your protection.

4) In vehicles or outdoors: When tornadoes are possible, prioritize your safety by minimizing outdoor activities and completing them well in advance. Stay near a sturdy shelter at all times. In the event you are caught outdoors, seek immediate shelter in a low-lying ditch or stay inside your vehicle. Cover your head for added protection. Remember, avoid seeking shelter under a highway overpass as wind speeds can intensify due to a tunneling effect.

5) Remember, stay away from doors, windows, outside walls and protect your head!
