A hundred percent safety guarantee during a tornado is not promised, but there are ways to ensure the safety of yourself and your family during one.
Once media platforms have announced that a tornado is likely to start at a particular time, it is important to stay glued to these media outlets' reports as it is the number one way to get an idea of what exactly is going on and how to survive it.
By being thoroughly informed about how to survive a tornado event and teaching the same thing to your children, they become able to identify a tornado and run to safe shelters that protect them from the adverse effects.
With the right information, it is easy to survive tornadoes and many other natural disasters that damage properties and kill many.
During a tornado, it is essential to gird yourself with certain items, which greatly increases the chances of you surviving the natural disaster. These items include:
- New Batteries
- Battery Powered Radios, TVs, Flashlight
- Access to a Safe Shelter Nearby
- Emergency Kit
- Non-Perishable Food Supply and Water
- Important Contact Information
Stay Panic Free
Panic does nothing more than cause more confusion in an already troubled state of events. A clear mind helps during a tornado as it keeps you thinking straight to take all the necessary precautions and shelter when you see a sturdy building without many windows.
Do not panic when driving in your vehicle and hearing news of a tornado happening soon. What you can do instead is to look for somewhere safe to park your vehicle rather than thinking you can outrun it. When you step out of the vehicle, look for shelter and inform family and friends about your whereabouts while imploring them to do the same.
Higher survival rates during a tornado are possible when the community is properly informed on the measures to take in the event of one. The most important tip is to stay informed and ready to avoid being caught unprepared. An extra step is to purchase a windstorm insurance policy which helps pay for damage brought about by the storm.
