Staying Safe During Tornado Season
In North Carolina, Spring brings much more than April Showers. March through May is known as tornado season and is the prime time for these violent storms to cause damage on any structure that gets in their way.
When the warm, humid air in the lower atmosphere combines with the cooler air above it, the perfect conditions are created to form churning wind tunnels that can spin through a city at up to 300 mph.
The state has quite a history with tornadoes, as weather service data shows that between 1950 and 2016 there has been roughly 1,270 tornado incidents. The data shows that tornadoes usually hit right after another, such as in April 2011 when dozens were formed back to back.
By now, property owners understand the important of preparedness BEFORE the tornado season begins. Although there isn’t much you can do to protect your property, there is a lot you can do to protect yourself and your family.
Having a basement that you can go to during a tornado is the best way to stay safe when a tornado hits. Make sure you have food, water, blankets, flashlights, and a battery operated radio down there, since you may not know how long the storm will last or if another tornado will come through shortly after the first one.
If you do not have a basement, then the second safest place to go is in an inner hallway or room without any windows. Get under something sturdy that can protect you from any flying debris.
You should never try to outrun a tornado if you are caught outside, far from any shelter. Instead, lay flat, inside of a ditch or depression in the ground and wait for the storm to pass.
If you have any questions regarding tornado preparedness or need help finding other resources, call 911 Restoration Durham County and we will help point you in the right direction.
