Tornado-What to do?

January 30, 2013

When a tornado warning is spotted, a person may feel panicked and not know what to do.  WGOG would like to offer some tips, and a guide on exactly what to do if you spot a tornado.

  • AT HOME:  Seek shelter in the basement under something sturdy, such as a bench.  If there is no basement, seek shelter in a small room in the middle of the house such as a closet or bathroom.  Stay away from doors and windows.
  • AT WORK OR SCHOOL:  Designated shelter areas are best.  Stay away from large open rooms and rooms with windows.  Lie low with hands covering the back of your head.
  • IN MOBILE HOMES OR CARS:  Leave the vehicle.  Seek a safe structure or lie down in a low area with your hands covering the back of your head and neck.

Remember, a tornado warning means a tornado has been spotted or rotation has been detected by weather radar.  When a Tornado warning is issued, seek shelter immediately.
