Preparing For A Tornado

Updated:
Tornado Alley is living up to its name this season. Twenty-two twisters have touched down in Oklahoma this year, 15 of those in May. Tornadoes can occur at any time of the day or night, and no area is immune to one so it’s important to have a tornado plan to keep you and your family safe.

  • Pick a place where your family can gather if a tornado is headed your way.
    This could be your homes basement, or if there isn’t a basement a central hallway, bathroom or closet on the homes lowest floor.


  • Assemble a disaster kit to include essential medications, canned food with a can opener, at least three gallons of water per person, extra clothing and shoes, a flashlight, extra batteries and a radio.


  • For the latest warnings and watches you can turn to the News On 6, and if your electricity is out you can tune into 87.7 FM for all the latest watches and warnings.
