Safe Driving Suggestions - Tornados

Tornado

Also consider suggestions for driving in thunderstorms.

* Do not drive during tornado conditions.

* Never try to out-drive a tornado in a vehicle. Tornadoes can change direction quickly and can lift a car or truck and toss it through the air.

* Get out of your vehicle immediately and seek shelter in a nearby building.

* If there is no time to get indoors, or if there is no nearby shelter, get out of the car and lie in a ditch or a low-lying area away from the vehicle. Be aware of the potential for flooding.
