4. Always Wear Shoes and a Helmet if Possible
Of course, most of us are fixated on the dangers posed during a tornado (and how could we not?), but the dangers posed to us in the aftermath can be just as dangerous. This is one reason that experts stress the need to always wear shoes when you take shelter.
If your home is struck by a tornado, even if you were completely unhurt, the ground will likely be covered with splintered wood and shattered glass. Your show will be scattered to the 4 winds, literally. The best place to keep them during a tornado is on your feet.
If you have a bike helmet and/or a heavy leather jacket, these layers can help protect you from flying debris.
