Tornado and High Wind Quick Tips

  • stay away from bridge/highway overpasses
  • don't try to out run a tornado if it is too close to you
  • if winds take down a power line do not approach the line. Call 911 or the local power company to inform them the line is down
  • know the signs of a tornado - dark green-colored sky; large, dark, low-lying clouds; large hail; loud roar that sounds like a freight train
  • talk to a contractor or handy man on how you can make your home more windproof.
