- If a shelter is not available or you do not have time to get indoors, lie down in a ditch or crouch near a strong building.
- Be sure to be aware of potential flooding.
- If you are inside a vehicle, do not try to out-drive a tornado. Get out of the vehicle and quickly take cover in a nearby building or lie in a ditch. A tornado can quickly change directions and toss your car in the air.
