p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
-March through May is peak tornado season.
-A tornado watch means there may be a
tornado in your area

-Most tornadoes form from thunderstorms.
-They need warm, moist air combined with
cool, dry air to create a tornado of fast wind.

Safety Tips
-If you are under a tornado watch or warning, the basement
is the safest place for you and your family.
-If you do not have a basement then find a room near or in
the center of your house with no windows. A bathroom or
closet may be best.
-Covering your head with your hands is a good way to
protect yourself.
-Listen for a sound like a siren to know one is near.
-If you are outdoors, find a ditch to crawl into. Cover your
head with your hands and crouch down low.
-If you are in school, follow the teacher’s directions. Act
quickly and quietly.
