Staying safe during storms and tornadoes
Tornadoes can strike with little to no warning if conditions are favorable. Tornadoes tend to occur in specific regions but it’s important to remember they have occurred in all 50 states and can happen any time of year. We often hear about the Fujita Scale rating, which measures the severity of wind speed; F1 tornadoes are the weakest, and F5 tornadoes are the strongest. Still, F1 tornadoes remain very dangerous, so during storm season, it’s prudent to remain prepared, especially if you live in an area prone to tornadoes and intense thunderstorms. Always do your research and know the safest place to be during a storm.
