What is a Tornado and How Does is Form?
What Can YOU Do to Prepare For a Tornado?
Make a Plan
Pick a safe room on your home where you and all your house hold members (and pets) can gather in the event of a tornado. This should be a basement, storm cellar, or an interior room on the lowest floor possible and has no windows.
Prepare Your Yard
Keep on top of basic yard matinence. Doing this can help prevent damage in the event of a storm. Make sure your trees and shrubs are free of weak or dead branches. Also, consider replacing gravel or stone with mulch, dirt or shredded bark. Dead branches can break off and do some considerable amount of damage and so can gravel and stones. On top of that, move any patio furniture or planters into your shed or garage as they could be picked up by the wind and be blown into windows.
