How do I prepare for a tornado?

Preparing in advance is a key to surviving dangerous storms such as tornadoes.
According to FEMA, identify a place to take shelter in such as a basement, another underground area, or an appropriate interior room. Stay away from windows (flying glass is a major hazard during tornadoes) and make sure the room is outfitted with an emergency alert weather radio, a first aid kit and other supplies such as water, batteries, blankets, etc.
Contact your local American Red Cross or government emergency management office for additional information.
