When a tornado WARNING is issued:

  • If you are inside, go to a basement or consider an interior hallway or room on the lowest floor.  Make sure there are no windows or glass doors in the area. 
  • Put as many walls between you and the outside as you can.
  • If you live in a mobile home, choose another safe place in a nearby sturdy building.
  • Put together a Disaster Supplies Kit in a clearly labeled, easy-to-grab container.
  • Make sure all family members know the name of the county or parish where you live or are traveling.
