Prepare for Spring Tornadoes
Springtime in Tennessee is more than warmer temperatures and blooming flowers – it’s also tornado season. Tornadoes can happen any time of year, but two-thirds of Tennessee tornadoes happen in the months of March, April and May. The best way to protect your family is to be prepared.Determine your home’s best tornado safety spot, and make sure all family members know where it is. A basement or an interior first-floor room or hallway (away from windows) is best.Gather emergency supplies including water, flashlights with extra batteries and a weather radio, and put them in your safe spot.Pay attention to tornado watches. If the weather forecasters issue a tornado warning for your area, seek shelter in your safe spot.Avoid automobiles, motor homes and rooms with lots of windows during tornadoes. If you are caught outside, lie flat in a ditch as low to the ground as possible until the storm passes.
