Tornado preparedness: Inside a vehicle

Top Stories

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – With the threat of severe weather, here are some tips on what you should do to stay safe during a tornado:

  • Get inside of a sturdy building or find a building with a concrete foundation.
  • 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.
