Safety tips:

The safest place in your home is the lowest level the basement, if you have one. If not, choose a small room away from windows, closet, hallway or bathroom. Stay near the center of the house. Put as many walls as possible between you and a tornado. Close all doors. If your safest room is a first-floor bathroom, get in the tub and hold a mattress or cushions over your head for protection.

If you live in a mobile home and you hear a tornado warning, leave your home immediately and go to a nearby shelter or the basement of a building. If you don't have time to reach a shelter, lie flat in a ditch, culvert or other low area and cover your head. Never try to flee a tornado in a vehicle.

If you get caught outdoors and can find a sturdy building go to the basement or choose a small room away from windows, closet, hallway or bathroom. Or lie flat in a ditch, culvert or other low area. Cover your head. Do not stay in a vehicle during a tornado.
