  •  the simplest thing for newbies is: (8+ / 0-)

    If you're new to an area with tornados, get the weather radio and set it up, and then use it and regular broadcast radio and television to be aware of watches and warnings.

    Any time there's any kind of prediction of a severe storm, err on the side of caution.  If you don't understand what a warning means, ask someone, or put your safety plan into effect.

    Better to deal with the inconvenience of using a safety plan and having it turn out to be unnecessary that time, than to ignore the situation and get smooshed.  

    Over time you'll learn more about the local conditions, warnings, and so on.  But until you do, err on the side of caution.

    "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.
