Tornado Awareness Month

Being that the month of April is tornado awareness month we would like to share some tips on how to stay safe during harsh conditions!

While tornadoes can occur throughout the entire year, they are most frequent from March - September. In the occasion of a tornado keep alert by listening to NOAA Weather Radio or the commercial media for the latest weather information. Anyone in the path of a storm should take immediate lifesaving action. In schools, hospitals, factories, shopping centers and other public places, move to designated shelter areas; interior hallways on the lowest level are best. Stay away from windows and out of auditoriums, gymnasiums, or structures with large free span roofs. Do not try to outrun a tornado in a vehicle. if necessary, abandon your vehicle, lay face down in a nearby ditch or depression and cover your head.
