It is important for you to learn the difference between a Tornado Watch and a Tornado Warning.
TORNADO WATCH – A Tornado Watch means conditions are conducive to the development of tornadoes in and close to the watch area. When a Tornado Watch is issued:
- Listen to local radio and TV stations for further updates.
- Be alert to changing weather conditions. Blowing debris or the sound of an approaching tornado may alert you. Many people say it sounds like a freight train.
TORNADO WARNING – A Tornado Warning means a tornado has actually been sighted by spotters or indicated on the radar and is occurring or imminent in the warning area. When a Tornado Warning is issued:
- If you are inside, go to the lowest floor in the building.
- If you are not able to go to the lowest point in the building, please head to an internal room. The bathroom or closets are usually the safest.
- Adopt the tornado safety position with your arms over your head, in a crouched position on the ground. It is best to bring a blanket to cover yourself in case of broken glass.
BE PREPARED – It is important for you to keep a Tornado Safety Kit available in your apartment. This should include:
- A first aid kit with essential medication in addition to the usual items.
- A battery powered radio, flashlight, and extra batteries.
- Canned and other non-perishable food and a hand operated can opener.
- Bottled water.
- Sturdy shoes and work gloves.
- Written instructions on how to turn off your homes utilities.
- Whistle or other loud device
