With beautiful spring weather come the dangers of severe weather and tornadoes.  Severe storm and tornado season in the Midwest typically occurs between April and July but the Midwest has seen tornado’s as early as March and as late as December. Minnesota will hold several severe weather activities during the week of April 21 – 25, 2014.
If you live in an apartment that is on an upper floor, get to the lowest level of the building that you can immediately.
If possible, move quickly but orderly to an interior bathroom or hallway, away from windows.
Severe Thunderstorm Watch – Severe thunderstorms are likely – keep an eye on the sky and listen to the radio or watch your local TV new station for more information.
Severe Thunderstorm Warning – this warning is issued when severe weather has been reported by trained weather watchers or appears on local weather radar.  Warnings of this nature mean that damage to personal property or danger to life is imminent to those in the path of the storm.
Tornado Watch – this weather warning indicates that tornadoes are possible.  Watch your local TV news station or listen to the radio for more information. Tornado Warning – a tornado has been sighted by trained weather spotters or indicated by radar. Dust mask for each person to filter contaminated air, plastic sheeting and duct tape for creating a shelter at the disaster site. Once things calm down, you can then contact your insurance agent and begin the process of filing a claim. Take the time to read your policy to make sure you know what will be covered and what will not.


These drills are designed to have people practice “take cover” drills in the locations that they are typically at, during that time of day.
Get in the basement and under some kind of sturdy protection (heavy table or work bench), or cover yourself with a mattress or sleeping bag.
Go to the lowest floor, small center room (like a bathroom or closet), under a stairwell, or in an interior hallway with no windows.
This could be an underground parking garage or a neighbor’s first floor apartment. Then move to the most interior area possible, away from windows. Go directly to an enclosed, windowless area in the center of the building — away from glass and on the lowest floor possible. Even if your home is tied down, you are probably safer outside, even if the only alternative is to seek shelter out in the open. If the tornado is visible, far away, and the traffic is light, you may be able to drive away from its path by moving at right angles to the tornado.
If not, lie flat and face-down on low ground, protecting the back of your head with your arms. Move as quickly as possible to an interior bathroom, storage room or other small enclosed area, away from windows. A severe thunderstorm with a history of producing golfball size hail and weak low-level rotation is located over the City of Denton.


Know where very heavy objects rest on the floor above (pianos, refrigerators, waterbeds, etc.) and do not go under them.
Most tornadoes can destroy even tied-down mobile homes; and it is best not to play the low odds that yours will make it. Otherwise, park the car as quickly and safely as possible — out of the traffic lanes. If there is no time to do that, get under the seats or pews, protecting your head with your arms or hands.
Interior stairwells are usually good places to take shelter, and if not crowded, allow you to get to a lower level quickly.
Even in an interior room, you should cover yourself with some sort of thick padding (mattress, blankets, etc.), to protect against falling debris in case the roof and ceiling fail.
Avoid seeking shelter under bridges, which can accelerate the wind while offering little protection against flying debris.
