Tornado Safety Tips 

Last April, a tornado tore through Upstate South Carolina, leaving behind severe damage in Oconee County. Many residents sought safe shelter and remained physically unharmed. As we approach the first anniversary, we wanted to remind everyone of a few tips to keep you safe, should this happen again. 

  • Pick an interior room in your home to take cover. A cellar, bathroom, or closet are ideal places to wait out a tornado. Avoid rooms with windows. If you can't decide where to go, choose your bathroom. The tub is the safest place to be during a tornado.
  • If you get stuck outdoors, find a ditch and lay down as flat as you can. Stay far away from items that can fly through the air. 
  • Do not stay in a car or try to drive away from a tornado. Cars can be lifted by high winds or crushed by debris. 
  • If you evacuate your home, do not return until local officials have said it is safe to do so.
