Oklahomans are no stranger to tornadoes. These violent forces of nature can show up with little warning and cause catastrophic damage to entire cities in the blink of an eye. Being prepared and knowing what to do in the event of a tornado can be a important factor in the safety of you and your loved ones.
Know your safe place. A storm shelter, is always ideal. Having battery a powered radio or TV can help you keep contact with the outside world and also keep updated on the status of the storm. If you’re driving while the storm is approaching, make yourself aware of the direction the storm is traveling and of potential places to pull over and take shelter, knowing that bridges and overpasses are not a safe place to seek shelter because of the “wind tunnel effect” that can occur.
During the Storm
If a shelter or basement is not available, get to the lowest or center-most point of the nearest sturdy building and stay away from windows. Covering up with a mattress or blanket can also help protect you from any flying debris. Stay there until the storm is over.
After the Storm
Let friends and loved ones know you are okay. Check on the safety of yourself and those around you and call emergency first responders as needed.
