Spring weather brings uncertainty. Here are some tips on what do to and/or what not to do when it comes to tornado weather safety.

What to do:

  • Get off the road. The best option is to shelter in place in a designated shelter, basement or safe room.
  • The next best option is a small, window-less room or hallway on the lowest floor of a sturdy building.

What not to do:

  • Do not seek refuge in a vehicle, outside, or under an overpass. A highway overpass does not provide safety from a tornado.
  • Do NOT seek shelter under an overpass or a tree.
