|Tornado Damage in my hometown in 1948.|
The first order of business is to identify a spot in your home where you can go in case of violent weather. Here, Bertie’s already found a spot in the fireplace in the dining room. But, since we both won’t fit in there, I’ve found another location which will accommodate both of us. Locate a spot in your home which provides structural support and keeps you free from windows and glass which could prove to be dangerous in high winds.
In that spot—be it a closet, bathroom or basement, keep a flashlight and bottled water so that you can be prepared. While most of us will never experience terribly violent weather, it’s always a good idea to be ready in the event that it should happen.
