Tornado Safety Information

When a tornado warning is issued and you are
  • In a house
    • Go to the basement, get under a table, workbench or other sturdy furniture.
    • If there is no basement, go into a small interior room on the lowest floor. Closets, bathrooms and interior halls afford the best protections. Stay away from windows!
  • In an apartment
    • Move to the innermost room on the lowest level or to a pre-designated shelter area. Crouch down and protect your head from the flying debris. Avoid areas with glass and large roof spans.
  • In a mobile home or vehicle
    • Abandon it immediately and seek and sturdy shelter or permanent structure.
