The weather during the summer is usually very pleasant. However, due to changing temperatures and the different fronts (or ‘blocks’ of air), that beautiful weather can often times suddenly become severe. In the most extreme cases, that severe weather can result in a tornado! Even though tornadoes are some of the most frightening phenomenon on the planet, there are several ways that you and your family can prepare for them. Keep these instructions on how to prepare for a tornado in mind this summer.
- If the weather report is calling for severe weather soon, then you might want to consider removing any dead or broken branches from trees surrounding your home.
- In addition to removing any dead branches, you will also want to bring in any furniture that is located in your yard that the tornado could potentially pick up.
- You and your family should work to pick out a room in your house to serve as your designated safe room. The ideal safe room will be located under the ground and will not possess any windows.
If you follow these instructions on how to properly prepare for a tornado, then you and your family can be better prepared for any severe weather that comes your way this summer.
