The classic rock band The Byrds once advised that to everything there is a season, and unfortunately that includes tornados.
Did you even know there was a tornado season? Seems like those are with us all the time but weather conditions from March to October are particularly ripe in Texas for such storms. TDHCA wants all Texans to be prepared (TexasPrepares.org) in the event a tornado strikes.
Unlike a flood which requires an immediate evacuation, or a hurricane where you will likely have time to leave by car for safe shelter, a tornado may require you to shelter in place. Tune in to local TV and radio for recommendations from local officials. How do you do that?
Keep an AM/FM/Weather band radio (or a NOAA Weather Radio) that can be powered by batteries or plugged into an electrical outlet handy. More »
