Enhanced potential for tornados between 2 and 5 p.m. Monday
The National Weather Service in Ruskin, Florida has reported that the atmosphere today fits the profile for an enhanced risk for tornados and waterspouts between 2 and 5 p.m. today Sept. 21.
If there is a Tornado Watch or Warning issued today, please follow the following safety tips:
– Go to an inside room without windows on the lowest level of the house (a closet, bathroom, or interior hall).
– Protect your body from flying debris with a heavy blanket or sleeping bag.
– Avoid windows. Opening windows to equalize pressure is ineffective in reducing damage during a tornado.
Stay home until the danger has passed and monitor local weather for changing conditions.
