Tornado

Health Matters News April 2017 
Tornado Season


Springtime is the season when Illinois typically sees the most tornadoes, although history has shown that the storms can develop in any month of the year. Heading into spring, now is a good time for us to learn more about the dangers of severe weather, make emergency plans with our families, and gather the materials we would need in our emergency kits.

During severe weather events, experts encourage you to listen to NOAA Weather Radio or to commercial radio or television newscasts for the latest information. It is important that in any emergency, always listen to, and follow the instructions given by local emergency management officials. 

Especially at this time of year, be alert to weather conditions that can change quickly.
Look for the following danger signs:


• Dark, often greenish sky

•  Large hail

• A large, dark, low-lying cloud
  (particularly if rotating)

•  Loud roar, similar to a freight train

• If you see approaching storms or any of the
  danger signs, be prepared to take shelter
  immediately


Familiarize yourself with these terms to help identify a tornado hazard:

Tornado Watch - Tornadoes are possible. Remain alert for approaching storms. Watch the sky and stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio, commercial radio or television for information.

Tornado Warning - A tornado has been sighted or indicated by weather radar. Take shelter immediately.
 
Tornadoes are violent as they can completely destroy well-made structures, uproot trees and hurl objects through the air like deadly missiles. Although severe tornadoes are most common in the Plains States, they can happen anywhere.


Learn what to do to keep your loved ones safe.

Identify a safe place in your home where household members and pets will gather during a tornado; a basement, storm cellar or an interior room on the lowest floor with no windows. In a high-rise building, choose a hallway in the center of the building. You may not have enough time to go to the lowest floor.

In a mobile home, choose a safe place in a nearby sturdy building. If your mobile home park has a designated shelter, make it your safe place. No mobile home, however it is configured, is safe in a tornado.
