Tornado Safety Tips to Protect Your Family & Home

Natural disasters can be deadly. Learn how to protect your family and your home from tornadoes.

Consider yourself lucky if the closest you’ve come to a tornado is The Wizard of Oz. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, an average, 1,000 tornadoes are reported in the United States each year, with 70 tornado-related deaths. Stay safe during these violent storms by arming yourself with knowledge.

When to spot a tornado: Tornadoes can strike any time of year, but peak times are March through May in southern states and summer in northern states.

Warning signs of a tornado: Common signs of a tornado are a dark, sometimes greenish, sky; wall clouds; loud roar like a freight train; hail or rain followed by sudden calm or fast wind shift; and whirling debris, even if a funnel cloud is not visible. If you suspect a tornado is nearby, take immediate precautions:

No matter where you’re taking shelter, be sure to stay in place until the all-clear is given because severe thunderstorms often accompany tornadoes.
