Your Safe Place From Tornadoes
Tornadoes can be extremely dangerous so if you receive a tornado warning, take shelter immediately. Safe places are storm shelters and basements, but if not available, an interior room without windows can also be protective.
Your Safe Place From Lightning
Lightning strikes the U.S. 25 millions times a year, which sometimes results in death or permanent injury. If you hear thunder or see lightning, take shelter immediately. Indoors or inside a hard-topped and enclosed vehicle is the safest place.
Your Safe Place From Heat

Your Safe Place From Flooding
During high winds, tree damage is expected. Indoors, away from windows, in an interior room is the safest place. Prevent damage to your property by trimming loose branches and parking away from trees.
