Tornadoes in Tuscaloosa
Your safety during a storm is the number one priority for you, your family, and your employees.
Being prepared for a storm and having an emergency plan in place is necessary.
Look for Storm Warning Signs
Tornadoes typically occur when there is a severe thunderstorm in the area. Rain, hailstorms and lightning strikes are some of the signs of a possible tornado. Some other warning signs of an oncoming tornado include:
* Orange or Green Skies
* Rumbling or Roaring Sounds in the Air
* Very Calm Conditions after a Storm
* Damaged Power Lines or Debris
* Rotation of the Clouds
Staying Informed during a Storm
Local television and radio stations are your best source for updates on how the storm is developing. However, if you hear a tornado siren, you should immediately head to the nearest shelter. Some more modern forms of staying informed is live streaming from your local emergency broadcasters such as James Spann and following your local weather news casters on twitter. DO NOT REPLY on solely this as your means of monitoring a storms progression, but these will help in case you do not have access to television or radio.
