Tornado Safety Advice for Mobile Home Residents

Mobile homes are not safe in a tornado. 
Your life may well depend on executing your 
tornado safety plan when storms approach. 

If you live in a mobile home, I recommend elevating the importance of tornado watches -- the forecast that tornadoes may occur the next few hours. When a tornado watch is issued for your area, it is time to begin monitoring the weather closely.

  • If you have an official shelter available to you that you can reach in a matter of tens of seconds, you are good to go, provide you have a way to immediately receiving warnings. 
  • If you have to go to a friend's house, community shelter, or other shelter that requires minutes to get to, I recommend heading that way if a severe thunderstorm warning is issued or if there is a tornado warning on a nearby storm that hasn't yet reached your area.
