How to Plan for a Tornado

Jun 10 '16 | By mroja | Views: 189 | Comments: 0

Tornadoes are popping up http://centumentltdreview.com/the-lost-ways-ebook-review/  everywhere, not just in traditional "tornado weather zones" anymore. For this reason, you need to have some sort of plan etched out in case your city suddenly becomes one of those "exceptions to the rules." I was surprised last year to find out that a tornado hit my hometown of Brooklyn. It went down just one street, but devastated all the trees and landscaping. It was a scary sight to see, and although there were no human casualties, I am sure it was a wake up call to the residents.

Tornado season anywhere is nothing to take lightly, but even with the most advanced warnings, it is still too late to start putting together a survival plan in the mist of a natural disaster. This must be planned out in advance, so that when you get the warning signal, all of your precious time is used in implementation, not planning.

For tornado pre-planning, The Lost Ways Review  it is all about the "Shelter." To me, the best shelter in case of a tornado is an outdoor accessed root or storm cellar (think of the cellar Auntie Em went into from the Wizard of Oz). Most people in tornado high-risk areas already have these. The next option would be to head for the basement. You want to get below ground as much as possible and away from windows. The third option, if a basement is not available, is to get to the lowest floor possible in a bathroom, small room, or closet, where you can stay away from windows and cover yourself with mattresses, sleeping bags, or anything that will help to protect you from flying debris. Even get under a sturdy table to protect yourself if that is all that is available, but make sure it is a Sturdy table!
