Tornado in FieldJust thinking about the wake of destruction left behind by tornadoes is enough to make some people worry about the safety of their families in the event of a storm. Windstorms and tornadoes are capable of stirring up massive destruction. So how can you protect your home and your family? We've compiled safety tips to help safeguard you and yours.
  • If a tornado is spotted or the sirens go off, take cover immediately. Find an area on the first level of your house with no windows. This may be a bathroom or closet. Crouch down and cover up with a blanket or jacket for protection from flying debris.
  • Bring your pets with you if you must take cover.
  • Do not emerge from this safe spot until you are certain the threat has passed. One way to monitor the situation is to bring a cell phone or weather radio with you.
  • Make sure your safe spot is not directly under heavy objects on the floor above. You wouldn't want a piano or bed frame falling through the ceiling and landing on top of you.
  • If the storm is predicted in advance, you may wish to prepare or even evacuate. Pack up essentials like clean clothes, non-perishable food, bottled water, medications, first aid supplies, a phone and charger, important paperwork, cash and other necessary items.
  • If you're in a car during a tornado, pull over, get out of the vehicle and lay face down in a ditch or low area. Avoid overpasses or areas with lots of trees. The goal is to quickly find a place to wait out the storm with a low risk of falling objects.
Talking about tornado safety with your family can help protect everyone if a tornado does tear through your neighborhood. And remember, the protection of home insurance can help you financially recover from such an event.
