Remember, there is a difference between a watch and a warning

Here are some safety measures to take during a tornado warning, depending upon your location:

  • Go into a building and find a safe room or designated Tornado Shelter Areas
  • If a designated space is not available:
    • Go to the lowest possible level in a building
    • Move away from glass windows, exterior walls and doors
    • Move to hallways that are at the center or most interior part of the building
    • Move to restrooms without an exterior wall
