Right Before a Tornado
Don’t wait until you see the tornado to act! If you do nothing else:
1. Listen to local area radio, NOAA radio or TV stations for the latest information and updates.
2. Move to an underground shelter, basement or safe room. If none is available, a small, windowless interior room or hallway on the lowest level of a sturdy building is the safest alternative.
- Remember: no area of a mobile home is safe during a tornado. If you have access to a sturdy shelter or a vehicle, go there immediately, using your seat belt if driving.
3. Find a local emergency shelter and know the best routes to get there if you need to.
