Recognizing Tornado Danger Signs
As we continue to talk about tornadoes as part of the upcoming statewide tornado drill and the county government’s three-day emergency exercise, what are some signs of a developing tornado you should look for in case you don’t have access to a weather radio, social media or traditional media outlets (or if you’re just not sure)?
- Dark, often greenish sky
- Large hail
- A large, dark, low-lying cloud (particularly if rotating)
- Loud roar, similar to a freight train
If you see approaching storms or any of the danger signs, be prepared to take shelter immediately.
