It is important to have a plan of action in the event a tornado threatens and to rehearse the plan frequently. Such a plan should include what you and your family should do when at home, work, school, or outdoors. The time spent planning NOW could determine whether or not you survive a tornado.
Know the county or parish in which you live. Severe weather warnings are issued for counties/parishes or for portions of a county/parish (i.e., northwest Jackson County or southern Vermilion Parish). By keeping a highway road map nearby, you can follow storm movements and better determine if you are threatened.
Have a NOAA Weather Radio with a warning alarm tone to receive the latest information from your local National Weather Service office.
