How to Prepare for a Tornado

Tornados are extremely unpredictable so knowing what to do ahead of time is important.

 

Summertime weather is usually famous for sunny days and hot temperatures. However, the summer weather is also famous for being unpredictable. Warm and cold fronts often clash during the summer months. The consequences of this violent change in weather can often come in the form of a tornado! Tornados can cause a ton of damage, so it is important to know how to prepare for a tornado. Fortunately, there are several ways you can ensure you and your family are safe before a tornado touches down!

  • There is often a period of warning before severe summer storms strike! Take this time to ensure that any dead or damaged branches from the trees surrounding your property are removed to minimize damages.
  • Other outside objects that can damage your property during a storm include yard furniture. Move this furniture from the patio to the inside of your home!
  • You should have a certain room in your home selected as a designated safe room in case of a tornado. This room should be below the ground if at all possible and should preferably lack windows.

Tornados can happen at any time. That is why it is so important that you be prepared for them at all times! Make sure that you and your family take the necessary precautions to stay safe this summer.
