Tornado safety tips
Whether practicing a tor-nado drill or sheltering dur-ing a tornado warning, theOhio Committee for SevereWeather Awareness encour-ages everyone to DUCK.D – Go DOWN to the low-est levelU – Get UNDER some-thingC – COVER your headK – KEEP in shelter untilthe storm has passed
• Be prepared for severe
weather before a storm watchor warning is issued. Meetwith household members todevelop a disaster plan torespond to all hazards, includ-ing tornado watches and warn-ings. Conduct regular tornadodrills. Know how to turn off the water, gas and electric atthe main switches.
• If you are a person with
special needs, register yourname and address with yourlocal emergency manage-ment agency, police and/orfire departments before anynatural or man-made disasteroccurs.
• The NOAA Weather
Radio has alerting tools avail-able for people who are hear-ing impaired. Some weatherradio receivers can be con-nected to an existing homesecurity system, similar as adoorbell, smoke detector orother sensor. For additionalinformation, visit the NWSNOAA Weather Radio link:http://www.weather.gov/nwr/special_need.htm
• The safest place to be
during a tornado is a base-ment. If the building has nobasement or cellar, go to asmall, centrally located roomon the lowest level of thebuilding, such as a bathroomor closet or interior hallway.
• If you are in a vehicle,
trailer or mobile home, getout immediately and go tothe lowest floor of a sturdy,nearby building or storm shel-ter. Mobile homes, even if tieddown, offer little or no protec-tion from tornadoes.
• If you are outside with no
shelter, lie in a nearby ditchor depression and cover yourhead with your hands. Do notseek shelter under a highwayoverpass or bridge. You willbe exposed to stronger windsand flying debris.For additional informationon tornado safety and severeweather preparedness, visitwww.weathersafety.ohio.gov.
