LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) –We want to keep you aware and safe as tornado season approaches. Here are some tornado safety tips.
During a tornado or severe storm, identify and go to a safe place in your home’s center with no windows. In a high-rise building, get to the hallway in the center of the building as you may not have time to get to the lowest floor.
If you are outside, seek shelter, or get to a vehicle to find shelter, stay away from bridges and overpasses. If you spot a tornado or experience strong winds, park your vehicle, keep your seat belt fastened, and the engine running.
Officials say to lower your head below and away from the windows and cover your head with your hands and or a blanket. After severe weather passes let family and friends know you are okay, and if you were evacuated, do not return to the area until responders say so.
