While we typically have days to prepare in advance of a hurricane’s approach, tornadoes can spin off from a thunderstorm or hurricane with little to no warning, cutting a swath of destruction in mere moments. This storm season make sure your family is ready in the event a tornado touches down in your area.
A tornado watch lets you know that tornadoes are possible in and near the watch area. If your area is under a tornado watch:
Listen to your local radio stations, watch your local news or listen to NOAA Weather Radio.
Stay alert, watch for signs a tornado is approaching
Dark, often greenish clouds
Cloud of debris
Be ready to take shelter.
A tornado warning means one has been sighted or indicated by weather radar. Tornado warnings indicate imminent danger to life and property.
Find shelter. Stay away from windows. Go to the lowest point of your house or go to a room or hallway that doesn’t have windows. As a last resort, get under heavy furniture and stay away from windows.
If you’re outside and can’t find shelter, try to find the lowest point in the ground, such as a ditch. Cover your head with your hands or blanket if possible.
If you suspect any damage to your home, shut off electrical power, natural gas and propane tanks to avoid fire, electrocution or explosions.
Use battery-powered lanterns rather than candles if your power is out.
Never use generators, grills, camp stoves or other gasoline, propane, natural gas or charcoal-burning devices inside your home, garage or camper—or even outside near an open window, door or vent. Carbon monoxide (CO) — an odorless, colorless gas that can cause sudden illness and death if inhaled — from these sources can build up in your home and poison the people and animals inside. Seek prompt medical attention if you suspect CO poisoning and are feeling dizzy, light-headed or nauseated.
