If you ever see a big black cloud with a funnel-like extension beneath it, watch out! It could be a tornado.

When a Tornado Watch is issued, keep your eye on the sky for signs of a possible Tornado and watch KLTV for up to date information. When a Tornado Warning is issued, act fast to protect yourself!

What to do if...

Remember when a tornado is coming, you only have a short amount of time to make life-or-death decisions. Advance planning and quick responses are the keys to surviving a tornado.

Here is a list of supplies you should have for a disaster kit:

  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • Portable, battery-operated radio and extra batteries
  • First aid kit and manual
  • Emergency food and water
  • Non-electric can opener
  • Essential medicines
  • Cash and credit cards
  • Sturdy shoes
