Are You Tornado Readfy?

Are You Tornado Readfy?
Tornado Preparedness Week is
March 6th to 10th

As we approach Tornado Preparedness week, our clients' safety is at the top of our mind. There are 3 things you can do to help prepare before tornado season. 
  1. Identify a Safe Room
  2. Know the Warning Signs
  3. Seek Shelter
Identifying a Safe Room
When a tornado strikes, there's often very little time to react. A windowless area on the lowest floor in your home or business is your best bet for a safe place. Low, windowless, rooms will be the most designed to withstand high winds and flying debris caus
ed by a tornado. This can help you and those around you stay safe during the storm.

Know the Warning Signs
If you see the typical signs of a tornado, it's time to search the sky for a funnel formation. Those signs include:
  • A dark, greenish sky
  • Large hail
  • Big, dark, low-lying clouds (especially if they're rotating)
  • A loud roar, similar to a freight train
Seek Shelter
Find the safest place possible, wherever you may be. You'll want to try to put as many walls and ceilings between yourself and the tornado as you can. Those extra layers increase your safety. If you're not near a building to take shelter in, get into your car, buckle the seatbelt, and cover your head with your arms.

The threat of tornados are one of the more terrifying aspects of living in the Midwest, so it's important you know what to do during and after a tornado.
