Tornadoes: Know Where to Seek Shelter
When a tornado is imminent, seek shelter in a reinforced tornado shelter or safe room, if one is available. Shelters saved lives when the devastating tornado tore through Moore, Okla., May 20.
Otherwise, head underground into your home's basement or cellar. If your house has no cellar, head to an interior, windowless room, such as a bathroom, or, if possible, evacuate your home.
When the Moore, Okla., tornado was bearing down, some newscasters warned residents without underground shelters to vacate their properties, advice which ultimately saved lives.
Mobile home residents should evacuate to a community shelter.
