You can’t really get more stormy than a tornado.

But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do something to prepare.

Here are a few tips to keep your family and loved ones safe while you’re there.


Make sure you’re in the right place at the right time The time of the storm is when the tornado is strongest.

But the exact time of day or time of year can be a big factor in where to be in the storm.

“If you’re not in the best position to get a ride home, that’s a real risk,” said Mike Tompkins, a meteorologist and former NASA scientist.

If you’re standing in front of a tornado, get to the top of the building, he said.

“Then you can just grab the closest vehicle, get the roof down and get out of there.”

Tompinks suggested that you should avoid areas that are heavily populated and are likely to be damaged.

“The most important thing you can do to keep yourself safe is to make sure you have an umbrella, a blanket, a jacket and a good hat,” he said, referring to wind-resistant items.

If the winds are getting so strong, Tompoks said, it can be difficult to see if you’re actually inside the storm, or if the wind is blowing from the back.

“There’s always going to be a danger of being in a tornado.”

Toms said that if you don’t have a plan in place, you might be in for a scary night.

“In general, it’s a good idea to wear a jacket, but if you can’t see your car, you should be in a jacket or jacket and pants,” he added.

If someone is in a vehicle that’s being pulled by a trailer, get out as quickly as possible.

“It’s a much more dangerous situation if they’re getting dragged out of the vehicle,” he told ET.

“But, if you do, get as close to the vehicle as possible.”


Stay in your homes if possible If you can, get outside and make sure your windows are open.

If your windows aren’t open, it’ll be much harder for the tornado to penetrate them, he added, and you could be hit by it if you step outside.

“Make sure you’ve got enough shelter and you have enough light,” he advised.

“Don’t go outside with the windows down.

The windows are not designed to be open.”


Stay away from your cars Toms suggested that if your windows don’t open up and you’re still driving, “go into your garage, put your vehicle in your garage and get away from it,” he suggested.

Tompers suggested that when it’s your home, you don
