When is Tornado Season in North Georgia? March, April, May!
Be Sure To Have Your Safety Information And Make Sure All Are Aware:
It is important to have a safety plan before you need to act. Tornadoes can develop rapidly so be prepared to act quickly! The preparedness guide for thunderstorms, tornadoes and lightning suggests the following safety rules for tornadoes:
-Move to an underground shelter, basement or safe room.
-If the above is not available, more to a small, windowless interior room or hallway on the lowest level.
-Abandon mobile homes and go to the nearest sturdy building or shelter immediately.
-If you are caught outdoors and a basement or sturdy building is unavailable:
-Immediately get into a vehicle, buckle your seat belt and try to drive to the closest sturdy shelter.
-If flying debris occurs while you are driving, pull over and park. Now you have the following options as a last resort:
-Stay in your vehicle with the seat belt on. Put your head down below the windows, covering it with your hands and a blanket if possible.
-If you can safely get noticeably lower than the level of the roadway, exit your car, and lie in that area, covering your head with your hands.
Time is of the essence when bad weather comes in so be sure you and your family are prepared and ready for anything.
