Public Information Statement
Issued: 6:49 PM CDT Jul. 20, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Public information statement...

... Safety rules for tornadoes...

A Tornado Watch has been issued by the National Weather Service
for southwest inddiana, western Kentucky and portions of southern
Illinois and southeast Missouri. This watch is in effect until
2 am CDT. The following safety tips are being provided in the
hope that broadcast media will frequently broadcast these messages
while the watch affects their area.

A Tornado Watch means conditions are favorable for the development
of severe thunderstorms which can produce tornadoes in and close
to the watch area. If you are in the watch area, keep informed of
the latest weather information. These storms can develop rapidly,
so there may be occasions when advance warning is not possible.

A Tornado Warning means a tornado has been spotted or indicated by
radar. If you are in the path of or near the tornado, take
immediate action to protect life and property.

Follow these safety rules:

In open country, find a ditch, culvert, or other low area and lay
down flat. Cover your head with your hands for protection.

In homes or small buildings, go to the basement or a small
interior room on the lowest floor, such as a hallway, bathroom, or
closet. Use heavy furniture for shelter or cover yourself with a
mattress or blanket.

In Mobile homes or vehicles, abandon them and go to a substantial
structure or place of safety. Never try to outrun a tornado in a
vehicle.

In schools, hospitals, factories, or shopping centers, go to
designated shelter areas. Interior Halls on the lowest levels are
usually the best. Stay away from gymnasiums or auditoriums. Avoid
all outside walls and windows.

The key to tornado survival is to be prepared and take immediate
action when a warning is issued or when you feel threatened.
Remember, the action you take during a tornado event may save your
life and the lives of those you are responsible for.
