Tornado Disaster Preparedness



Danger Signs Include:

  • Dark, often greenish sky
  • Large hail
  • A large, dark, low-lying cloud (particularly if rotating)
  • Loud roar, similar to a freight train.
  • If you see approaching storms or any of the danger signs, be prepared to take shelter immediately.

During a Tornado

  • Go to an inside room without windows on the lowest floor of the building you are in.
    For example: a bathroom, closet or center hallway.
  • If possibly try to get under something sturdy like a heavy table or workbench
  • Try to cover your body with a blanket, sleeping bag or mattress.
