As severe weather continues to threaten the Midwest and South, the American Red Cross wants to make sure you know what to do in the event of a tornado. Review the slideshow to debunk popular myths and learn what you should do to keep yourself and your loved ones safe.
The Red Cross also encourages you to download our free Red Cross Tornado App which includes more safety information as well as alerts for tornado watches and warnings in your area. It can also help you locate a shelter if you need a safe place to weather the storm. Learn more about the Tornado App.
The app can be found in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store by searching for American Red Cross or by going to redcross.org/mobileapps.
