6. Secure Your Pets With a Carrier or Leash
Don’t overlook your pets in the event of a major storm. Pets are like family to many of us and we couldn’t bear to lose them, true. What many of us overlook is how erratic they may become when confronted with the howling winds of a nearby tornado.
Even well-trained dogs may be overwhelmed with anxiety during a tornado. Pets may become frightened and try to escape or just simply get confused, and you don’t want to put your life at risk as you try to chase after them.
Securing you pets is the best way to protect them as well as yourself during a storm. A leash or pet carrier in your safe place will ensure that you family is all together in the safest possible area.
