Stay Safe During Spring Storms
It is nearly impossible to underestimate the destruction and loss of life a tornado can cause. Though tornadoes are only thought to pose potential danger in southern states and in "Tornado Alley" area of the United States, Alaska is the only state that did average at least two tornadoes per year over the past two decades (according to DisasterCenter.com). Research continues to indicate there is a direct correlation between how prepared the area was for a tornado and how many casualties were caused by the tornado.
- Be aware of your communities severe weather warning system. Know in advance where you will take shelter if at a home, office, etc.
- Put together an emergency kit. Contact your SERVPRO of South Elkhart County for a list.
- Do not open your windows. This does not help save the house, as once thought, but it could make things worse by allowing rain and debris a chance to blow into your house.
