Stay Safe Tonight
We’ve got some severe weather moving in to the area tonight. What do you do during a storm? With the recent tornadoes its a better time than ever to review what to do, and what not to do.
When I was in the world of college radio. One day during a bad storm, I went on air to remind people to stay away from windows and doors, I could look right out the studio window and see people standing in the hall. Right next to the doors, watching the weather.

At home, have a family tornado plan in place, based on the kind of dwelling you live in and the safety tips below. Know where you can take shelter in a matter of seconds, and practice a family tornado drill at least once a year. Have a pre-determined place to meet after a disaster. Flying debris is the greatest danger in tornadoes; so store protective coverings (e.g., mattress, sleeping bags, thick blankets, etc) in or next to your shelter space, ready to use on a few seconds’ notice. – Roger Edwards NOAA, READ MORE HERE.
