Tornado Awareness

With the rash of recent tornadoes this spring, USA.gov has put together a series of websites dealing with tornado awareness and education.

Learn more about what to do before, during, and after a tornado:

How to Prepare for a Tornado -- Learn about preparing a disaster supply kit, creating a plan, and knowing the signs of an approaching tornado (dark, greenish sky; large hail; low-lying and rotating cloud; and a loud roar, like a freight train).

What to Do During a Tornado -- Depending on whether you are in a building, outdoors, or in a vehicle when a tornado strikes, find out what to do.

What to Do After a Tornado -- Get tips on what to do in a potentially unsafe area following a tornado and learn about federal assistance.
