Do You Know the Six Tornado Warning Signs?
from the "How To Prepare for a Tornado" Guide

Having advanced notice of an approaching tornado is critical to  protecting your employees and on-site customers.  A new tornado preparedness guide identifies six key tornado warning signs:

1.  A rotating, funnel-shaped cloud that extends from a thunderstorm   toward the ground may be visible. 

2.  An approaching cloud of debris, especially at ground level, can mark the location of a tornado even if a funnel is not visible. 

3.  A loud roar that sounds similar to a freight train. 

4.  A strange quiet occurring within or shortly after a thunderstorm.  The wind may die down and the air may become very still. 

5.  Debris dropping from the sky. 

6.  A change in the color of the sky.

Perhaps more importantly is to tune-in and stay informed using local

media, an NOAA All Hazards (Weather) Radio, text alerts, smart phone apps, and other methods to monitor severe weather.
