Tips to stay safe during a tornado:
Inside a shelter:
-Head to the safest place possible, such as the center of your home - away from windows and preferably under something sturdy like a workbench or staircase or in a bathtub with a mattress over top of you.
-Close interior doors to help compartmentalize the structure and provide more barriers between you and the storm.
-Don't try to ride out a tornado in a manufactured home. Even manufactured homes with tie-downs overturn in these storms because they have light frames and offer winds a large surface area to push against.
Outside of a shelter in your car:
-Never try to outrun the tornado! Leave the vehicle immediately for safe shelter.
-If you safely can, get lower than the level of the roadway- such as in a ditch. Leave your car and lie in that area, covering your head with your hands.
-Do not get under an overpass or bridge.
