Tornado sirens should be small part of your tornado protection plan

(Continued)

STILLWATER, Okla. —

Hill recalled a tornado warning during the Stillwater Christmas parade five years ago.

“What’s the threat, what can happen and what are you going to do if it does,” Hill said, listing questions homeowners should ask themselves long before severe weather hits.

He said for tornadoes, residents should go to the lowest part of their home to seek shelter. He also suggested putting together a severe weather kit with flashlights, food, water and other essentials.

Hill said it is just as important to practice your plan and make sure your children know what to do as well.

 He recommended visiting ready.gov for more tips on being prepared for severe weather.
