Spring and early summer are tornado season. A tornado warning is the sounding of an emergency siren for three minutes followed by seven minutes of silence take cover.
At first notice of a tornado warning, you should:
- Stay inside away from windows, mirrors and glass.
- Find a safe place under heavy furniture for protection from falling objects; or
- Proceed to an inside hallway or below ground level.
- Do not use elevator.
- Remain in a safe area for at least 10 minutes after sirens stop sounding or until all clear signal is given
