Tornado Safety

It's up to you!

Each year, many people are killed or seriously injured by tornadoes despite advance warning. Some did not hear the warning while others received the warning but did not believe a tornado would actually affect them. The preparedness information in this brochure, combined with timely severe weather watches and warnings, could save your life in the event a tornado threatens your area. After you have received the warning or observed threatening skies, YOU must make the decision to seek shelter before the storm arrives. It could be the most important decision you will ever make.

Who's most at risk?
  • People in automobiles
  • The elderly, very young, and the physically or mentally impaired
  • People in mobile homes
  • People who may not understand the warning due to a language barrier
