Tornado Preps in Wake of Moore Disaster

Posted: Updated:

The peak time of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes in eastern Montana is June and when a tornado hits, the lead time is only 12 to 13 minutes. The most important thing you can do to prepare is have a plan.

Duane Winslow with Emergency Services says, "Find an interior room, one preferably that has no windows, maybe a hallway if you have windows in all your rooms. Or if you have a basement, the basement is the best place to go. "

Stay away from all windows, and if you live in a trailer home seek alternative shelter like a ditch or a depression in the ground. And whatever you do, don't try to drive away from a tornado. A tornado will carry your vehicle away along with you in it.
