|Title: Tornado Safety Rules|
Concept: What to do if you have no basement or storm cellar
Detail: In a home without a basement, take shelter on the lowest floor.
A closet, or better, an interior bathroom could be a good choice.
The piping often will prevent the walls from collapsing. The southwest
corner of most homes is, in fact, the most dangerousóbecause that is the
corner usually struck by the tornado and most likely to suffer damage.
Therefore, if you have any options, seek shelter in the portion of the
building away from the tornado, which is usually the northeastern part of
the house, (most tornadoes approach from the southwest). Again, avoid
being near windows, get under a heavy object if possible, and protect
your head. Wearing a football or motorcycle helmet could actually be a
very wise move during a tornado strike. Many have survived by climbing into
bathtubs and pulling a mattress over themselves.
