Tornado preparedness

When preparing for a tornado, the most important things to remember are:

• Get in: If you are outside, get inside. If you're already inside, get as far into the middle of the building as possible.

• Get down: Get underground if possible. If you cannot, go to the lowest floor possible.

• Cover up: Use pillows, blankets, coats, helmets, etc. to protect your head and body from flying debris.
