Stay Informed:

  • Pay attention to the weather, especially in the spring.
  • Use reliable sources of weather information: The local television stations, AM/FM radio, the Internet and NOAA Weather Radio.

Get in:

  • Get as far inside a Strong building as you can.
  • Put as many walls between you and the outside as possible.
  • Stay away from doors and windows.

Get Down:

  • Get as low as possible to avoid flying debris.
  • Go to the lowest floor possible. Underground is the best spot to be.

Cover up:

  • Use whatever you can find- pillows, mattresses, blankets - to protect yourself from flying and falling debris.
