The United States has more tornadoes than any other country in the world--about 1200 a year. Most of them occur in the spring but they can occur any time of the year when conditions are right, and they have occurred in every state.
In light of the recent storms in Oklahoma, Hoosiers can feel afraid and hopeless. Instead of worrying, they can put that nervous energy to use prepping for such a scenario.
The following picture essay points to ways of getting ready for such a storm. Do you know what to do before a tornado warning? What are the signs of an impending tornado? What should you do afterwards? What about your children's safety?
Remember: there is no such thing as guaranteed safety inside a tornado. Freak accidents can happen above ground as we can see from the recent photos in Moore, Oklahoma. Violent tornadoes can level houses and kill occupants. While most tornadoes are actually much weaker, all tornadoes can be survived by being prepped with the safety information in this list.
