Power Outage

Black out after Storm

Power Outage

Power Outage

The season of severe storms and / or tornadoes in Texas has arrived; tornadoes are common in Texas especially during the months of March to August.

Prepare yourself for a severe storm or tornado

First you need to understand the difference between a tornado watch and a tornado warning. A tornado watch means that the formation of tornadoes is possible. A tornado warning means that one has been sighted or detected by radar, and you should seek shelter immediately. Most cities will advise their residence of a possible tornado by using sirens and text messages.

Prepare a Shelter

If your home does not have a basement or a storm shelter, then go to the safest room, the safest room would be a room that does not have windows like the bathroom or a closet. If you live in a mobile home, plan to take shelter in a sturdy building, as mobile homes even if they are tied up they are not safe during tornadoes.  Another option will be to build a safe room, or reinforced an existing room. If you will like mote info on how to do this, you can visit the FEMA website.
