In April, weather forecasters issued tornado warnings in Georgia. When it is this season, you would not want to take any chances. Being prepared can help save lives and mitigate property damage.
There is nothing more frightening then a raging tornado tearing through your home, your neighborhood and your city. Now we’re in May, the month wherein tornados are more frequent. The deadly winds that strike the US, particularly in Tornado Alley, cost millions of dollars in property damage. They can strike any time depending on weather conditions. Though there is nothing we can do to stop them from forming during a thunderstorm, we can always prepare our family and our home for the possibility of disaster.
Livescience.com has the following facts about tornadoes posted on the website. On preparation they say:
Keep abreast of local weather forecasts and listen for watches and warnings. Having a weather radio in the house is also a good idea.
Have a family plan in place so you can quickly find shelter. Basements and storm cellars are the best place to take shelter, but if you don’t have either one, head to a bathroom, closet or any other interior rooms away from windows.
Don’t bother opening windows to equalize the pressure in the house — it’s a waste of time and the tornado will take care of that for you if it does hit your house.
A tornado can really destroy your home if materials aren’t durable enough. Some of the most vulnerable components of any home are the windows and unfortunately, nothing can really be done to stop a tornado’s path of destruction. Luckily, there are windows that are durable and versatile enough to deflect wind up to a certain point, allowing you to evacuate and get to safety.
