Tornado Season Reminder

This is Ben Holcomb's video of the April 29 tornado as it crossed Andover Road. 

Below is a photo of one of the homes destroyed during the video. It is located on the left side of the road. 
I wish to bring to your attention that, not only are windows broken out, there is a tree limb penetrating the home (arrow). While this home has a basement, it illustrates that if you do not have a basement or a professional storm shelter, it is vital to get into the bathtub or other small area like a closet in the middle of the house. The more walls between you and the outdoors, the better.

The 2021 tornado season is not over! A tornado caused damage in Virginia this morning and more tornadoes are likely next week. 

Even though this is a holiday weekend, please keep an eye on the weather Sunday and Monday near and in the yellow and, especially, amber-colored areas. Tornadoes, hail and damaging winds are quite possible.
