Tornado : go to a basement. if you do not have a basement, go into a bathroom (or any other small room without windows) and put a mattress over your head to protect yourself from flying debris. the reason the bathroom is safe is because 1. it has plumbing in that area which holds down that area and 2 most bathrooms don't have windows.
Hurricane : stay inside. if you go outside you will be pounded by debris and flood waters. stay inside an area like a bathroom. the plumbing will hold down that area and that means that it will not get blown away. also have supplies like canned food and bottled water. stay away from windows also. if the windows break, you will be cut by glass and debris will start flying in from that opening.
hope i helped!!!!!!!!!!
Tornado and Hurricane safety?
what are some good tornado and hurricane safety stuff we should do ( i live in florida)
Leave the area if its catalogues 2,3,4,5 no if ands or butts there will be big to colossal damage and you could even lose your life!
Stay if its only a depression, tropical storm, or catalogue 1. There will be little to no damage in these storm forces. But bord your windows, put sand bags in front of entrances, and have plenty food/water!
Get in interior room/basment and put something over your neck! Also have a radio for updates!00
- Hurricane Safety.
Know your home's vulnerability to storm surge, flooding and wind.
Locate a safe room or the safest areas in your home for each hurricane hazard. In certain circumstances the safest areas may not be your home but within your community.
Determine escape routes from your home and places to meet. These should be measured in tens of miles rather than hundreds of miles.
Have an out-of-state friend as a family contact, so all your family members have a single point of contact.
Make a plan now for what to do with your pets if you need to evacuate.
Post emergency telephone numbers by your phones and make sure your children know how and when to call 911.
Check your insurance coverage - flood damage is not usually covered by homeowners insurance.
Stock non-perishable emergency supplies and a Disaster Supply Kit.
Use a NOAA weather radio. Remember to replace its battery every 6 months, as you do with your smoke detectors. Always Pay close attention on what your local national weather service forecast office issues...as well as the national hurricane center.
Take First Aid, CPR and disaster preparedness classes.
Pay attention to your local forecast for the day to see if severe storm development is possible...Get a Plan together if put under a Tornado watch...and be ready to act (move to lower ground) if put under a Tornado Warning.
Listein to NOAA weather radio for the latest severe weather updates.
Also if you do happen to see a tornado or see any type of severe weather such as large hail...or damaging winds...It would be nice if you passed along your information to your local national weather service forecast office so they have ground truth there is a tornado touchdown...and they can put out warnings besides doppler radar indication that someone has actually spotted a tornado.00
