The NWS recommend you take the following steps:

  • Have a family emergency plan.
  • If a tornado threatens, go to the lowest level of your home and shelter in the most interior room, like a closet or bathroom and cover with pillows or blankets.
  • Residents in mobile homes or manufactured housing should have a safe place to wait out the severe weather.
  • When riding in a vehicle never attempt to outrun a tornado. You should abandon the vehicle and get into a nearby sturdy structure.
  • If you encounter flood covered roads, remember the phrase, “Turn Around, Don’t Drown.”
  • Check and restock your emergency supply kit in case you are without electricity for an extended period of time.
