Top Tips For Tornadoes
Tornadoes are something we’ve become more accustomed to in North Mississippi. They can be violent storms that can demolish even the best made structures. Tornadoes can uproot trees and throw other objects around. Here are three top tips to keep in mind about tornadoes from the American Red Cross:
- Identify a safe space in your home where your family and pets can gather. It should be the lowest floor, most interior room, with no windows.
- If you find yourself in a high rise building just find a hallway that is in the center in case, you do not have time to get to the lowest floor.
- If in a mobile home, find a safe place close by, no mobile home is safe in a tornado.
One last think to keep in mind is to know the difference between a Tornado Warning and Tornado Watch. A Tornado Watch means the conditions are probable for activity whereas a Tornado Warning means one is near or could occur soon so find a safe space immediately.
