With the recent news coverage of the devastating tornado in Oklahoma, it is impossible to ignore the incredible destruction tornadoes can cause. As a board member of the local Red Cross chapter, I wanted to pass along some helpful information about tornado preparedness.
The Red Cross is one of many local community boards that our staff members participate in. One of the many reasons we support these community organizations is so that we can learn new information—and pass it on to our friends and colleagues.
While severe tornadoes are more common in the Plains States, tornadoes have been reported in every state. Please pass this link on to your family and friends. At the website, you can find mobile phone apps for tornado safety tools and locating shelters, as well as a tornado safety checklist.
