1. Locate Your Home’s “Safe Place”
Most of us don’t have ready access to a storm shelter like the one in the photo. You can, however, drastically increase your level of safety by sheltering in the strongest room in your home.
If there’s a tornado threatening your home, the best place to seek shelter is a room on the lowest level of your home (ground floor or basement) with no windows.
If there is a windowless ground floor bathroom or closet under a staircase, this is likely the safest room in your home to ride out the storm. The smaller the room, the better.
This does not apply if you live in a mobile or manufactured home (see next slide).
