What if a tornado is approaching?
The safest place to be during a tornado is underground. If you have access to a basement or storm shelter, go there immediately. Remember to stay away from doors and windows, move to a small interior room, like a bathroom or closet, or an interior hallway, cover yourself with blankets to protect from flying debris, and remain in a safe place until the threat of tornado has passed.
