Preparing for Tornadoes

No one ever thinks they will find themselves in the path of a tornado, but since 2011 there has been an increase in tornadic events and even more so in the eastern and southeastern states. Even with all the Doppler Radar and other high-tech storm prediction software, scientists say they can only give the public 13 min. advance warning! That is why it is so critical to have a working plan in place, should you ever need to put it in action. This includes not only identifying a storm shelter, but an after disaster meeting place, contact plan for family and friends should disaster strike, financial planning and special planning for the disabled, seniors and pets. Here are some resources to help you get started.
