Tornado Safety Tips


By taking basic emergency preparedness precautions before a tornado strikes, you can dramatically reduce risk of injury to you or your loved ones.

Understanding the Warnings

Tornado safety begins by listening for National Weather Service advisories. A tornado watch is issued when tornadoes are possible in your area. You need to be attuned to environmental cues:
  • Dark, often greenish sky
  • Wall cloud
  • Large hail
  • Loud roar, similar to a freight train
Implement your Family Communication Plan, and make sure your American Family Safety emergency kit is within reach. Remind all family members where to gather if a tornado is imminent.
A tornado warning is issued when a tornado has been sighted or picked up by radar. You must immediately seek shelter. Don't wait for twisters to appear or touch down.

Tornado Safety Tips
  • In a home or building, move to a pre-designated shelter, such as a basement.
  • If an underground shelter is unavailable, move to an interior room or hallway on the lowest floor, and take cover under a sturdy piece of furniture.
  • Stay away from windows.
  • Get out of automobiles.
  • Do not try to outrun a tornado in your car. Instead, leave it immediately.
  • Mobile homes, even if tied down, offer little protection from tornadoes and should be abandoned.
For more information on tornadoes and tornado safety, please visit the American Family Safety Emergency Preparedness Library, which contains numerous resources to help you and your loved ones in the event of an unexpected emergency situation.

American Family Safety is an international corporation that distributes emergency supplies and emergency preparedness education materials. American Family Safety’s emergency kits contain all the materials needed for complete 72-hour emergency preparedness.

How We Built A Low Cost Tornado Shelter

How We Built A Low Cost Tornado Shelter was a free kindle book when this was posted.

 With the weather getting really crazy we needed a tornado shelter. We didn't have a lot of money to build one. After lots of research we decided to build an earthbag tornado shelter. This book describes how we built it with lots of pictures showing the process from the beginning to the end. It tells about where we located the tornado shelter, how we constructed the site, and how we laid the bags. It also tells about the ventilation system we used for lots of fresh air inside the shelter.

The Prepper's Guide To Grid Down Disaster Survival: How To Prepare For Surviving A Gas, Water, Or Electricity Grid Collapse

The Prepper's Guide To Grid Down Disaster Survival: How To Prepare For Surviving A Gas, Water, Or Electricity Grid Collapse was a free kindle book at the time of this posting.

 Every time you turn on the news or get on the internet, you are bombarded with images of one disaster or another. Sometimes it is a tornado, hurricane or earthquake and other times, it is civil unrest that is wreaking havoc. Then there are the terrorists that are always working hard to make this world an unpleasant and uncertain place to live. With so much strife in the world, it only makes sense you would take action to prepare for the inevitable to strike your little corner of the world. Most people always assume it will never happen to them or where they live. Living in a bubble or burying your head in the sand isn't going to help matters when disaster does strike. We have seen the evidence mounting over the past couple of years. Our electricity grids are vulnerable. We could very well find ourselves living in a very dark world. Could you survive? Do you know how to find clean drinking water after the grid fails and your tap no longer gives you what you need to survive? How can you make the water from your local river safe to drink? These are all things you need to consider today. You must be prepared to find food and water and deal with sanitation issues that will arise if the power grid is knocked out for a few weeks or a few long months or even longer. Things will be very different as the community adjusts to life without power, water or gas. Some people will thrive and others will be forced to fight for every moment of life. Do what you can to be a part of the first group and use this book to help yourself prepare for a downed power grid. You owe it to yourself and your family to spend some time putting things away that will ultimately save your life.
