Tornado season is upon us. So this is just a reminder from Tiny Town if storms hit your area.
Seek shelter in the lowest level of your house, away from windows.
What do you take?
*Shoes for each person. Not flip flops, but shoes. (Flip flops are not good in the debris from the aftermath of a storm.)
*A windbreaker or jacket for each person.
*A radio with batteries.
*Cell phones and chargers.
*Your purse or wallet.
*A flashlight for every two people. A group of 16 tried to share one flashlight after the tornado that hit Tiny Town. It didn't work very well.
*A leash for your pets. Pets are traumatized by storms and don't act normally. Families had to carry them to control them, and one guy made a leash from the drawstring in his sweats.
Some people put together a bag/box of what they need: food, water, prescription medicine, diapers, family photos, important papers, etc. Every family needs different things.
I never thought a tornado would hit here. It did. Some of these things Tiny Town citizens learned the hard way.
I hope you don't need these tips, but if you do--you might as well know what we didn't.
