... Safety rules for tornadoes...

A Tornado Watch has been issued by the National Weather Service
for all of southern Illinois, southwest Indiana, west Kentucky and
portions of southeast Missouri. This watch is in effect until
8 PM CDT this evening. The following safety tips are being
provided in the hope that broadcast media will frequently
broadcast these messages while the watch affects their area.

A Tornado Watch means conditions are favorable for the development
of severe thunderstorms which can produce tornadoes in and close
to the watch area. If you are in the watch area, keep informed of
the latest weather information. These storms can develop rapidly,
so there may be occasions when advance warning is not possible.

A Tornado Warning means a tornado has been spotted or indicated
by radar. If you are in the path of or near the tornado, take
immediate action to protect life and property. Follow these safety
rules:

In open country, find a ditch, culvert, or other low area and
lay down flat. Cover your head with your hands for protection.

In homes or small buildings, go to the basement or a small
interior room on the lowest floor, such as a hallway, bathroom,
or closet. Use heavy furniture for shelter or cover yourself with
a mattress or blanket.

In Mobile homes or vehicles, abandon them and go to a
substantial structure or place of safety. Never try to outrun a
tornado in a vehicle.

In schools, hospitals, factories, or shopping centers, go
to designated shelter areas. Interior Halls on the lowest levels
are usually the best. Stay away from gymnasiums or auditoriums.
Avoid all outside walls and windows.

The key to tornado survival is to be prepared and take
immediate action when a warning is issued or when you feel
threatened. Remember, the action you take during a tornado event
may save your life and the lives of those you are responsible for.
