Severe Weather Preparedness Week, Day 3: Tornado Drill

How Do You React to a Tornado?

  • COVER YOUR HEAD AT ALL TIMES! Use your arms, a blanket, a coat, or other cushion!
  • Seek shelter in the center of an INTERIOR ROOM or closet on the LOWEST FLOOR POSSIBLE. Avoid windows.
  • Mobile homes and trailers, even if tied down, offer LITTLE TO NO PROTECTION from tornadoes. Instead, seek the nearest sturdy building or storm shelter.
  • If traveling, seek a LOW, FLAT LOCATION like a ditch. Avoid bridges and overpasses, and DO NOT TRY TO OUTRUN THE TORNADO IN A CAR. If shelter is nearby, attempted to reach it if weather conditions allow.
