Tornado Risk Update: HIGH Risk of Tornadoes

 Updated Tornado Risk

A dangerous tornado situation is shaping up for southwest Kansas and far northwest Oklahoma.

It is vital to follow the safety suggestions below. And, please do not underestimate the "elevated" and "significant" risks. 

Recommended safety suggestions: 

Make sure you have at least three ways of receiving storm warnings.

✔️Weather Radio ✔️ Phone Alerts (turn on wireless emergency alerts) ✔️ Local TV ✔️Social Media ✔️Weather Apps

  • East of US 83 take your smartphone to bed with you!
  • Make sure Wireless Emergency Alerts are enabled. 
  • Make sure family and friends are monitoring the weather, also.
  • Make sure you can get family, especially infirm members, to shelter quickly if a tornado warning is issued.
  • Do not try to drive to a shelter after a tornado warning is issued. If a tornado watch is issued and strong thunderstorms approach you area, proactively go to your shelter area. Don't wait for a warning if you live in a mobile home or other unsafe building. 
  • If you have a motorcycle, football or other helmet, wear it into your shelter.
  • Insure your shelter area is ready to go. A flashlight, a couple of bottles of water, diapers, radio or TV, and always wear shoes into your shelter.
