Are You Prepared for Tornado Season?

Are You Prepared for Tornado Season?

What Should I Know?

A tornado can strike at any time of the year, but they are most popular March-May in the southern states, and summer months for the northern states. 
They are more likely to strike between 3:00pm-9:00pm, but can occur during any hour of the day.

Tornadoes are categorized by the Enhanced Fujita Scale. The higher the number, the more damage is will probably occur. 

It is vital to know the difference between a tornado warning and a tornado watch. A tornado watch means that a storm is coming, and there is a possibility of a tornado. A warning means that there is already a tornado in the area.
