So if you live in a tornado prone area or are moving to the area here's how to be prepared:
Have A Plan
Prepare an emergency plan for you and your family. Decide in advance where you will take shelter, and identify escape routes from your home or business. Have an emergency meeting place for your family to reunite. If you don’t have a shelter to go to, use your basement or a small interior room without any windows.
Prepare a Kit
Put together an emergency kit. Make sure it includes first-aid supplies, an NOAA all-hazard radio, a flashlight, batteries, extra food, extra car keys, cash and important documents.
Strengthen Your Home
By strengthening your home, you can improve the odds of surviving the high winds of a tornado. Make sure the anchors that attach your roof to your house, and the house to the foundations are strong.
