Don, Julie, and Mark are comin’ for ya! No, not your exes…the hurricanes. Hurricane season is June 1 through November 30. Are you prepared to stay safe in your apartment?
A tornado is nearby and you must move fast. Everyone knows basements are the safest places to take shelter. But what happens if you live in a second or third-floor apartment? How can you stay safe in a tornado?
Tornado Season is Underway
Spring and summer often bring about severe thunderstorms, which can often lead to tornadoes. Tornadoes can occur without warning and cause large amounts of damage to apartments and homes. At their worst, tornadoes can reach speeds of more than 300 mph. People who reside in apartments should have a storm plan laid out to avoid injury or death, reports the National Weather Service.
