If you do not feel safe during the storm, head immediately to the “safe room” in your home.
A secure room should be an interior room that has enough space for everyone, and a quick way out if necessary. It should be a secure, windowless (but ventilated) place. It can be a standard, 6-by-6-foot room, bathroom or walk-in closet. Special accessibility needs should be considered.
An emergency supply and first aid kit should be in the room. There should be an adequate supply of food and water for everyone who will be in the room.
Surviving the storm: Remain in the safe room— you could be in it for hours — until weather authorities have issued an “all clear” for your area.
