Tornadoes are very dangerous storms. A tornado usually looks like a dark cloud with a cone shape at the bottom. If you ever see a cloud like that, look out! It could be a tornado. There are some kinds of storms that may produce a tornado. When these come up, the weather service puts out a tornado watch. This means it will look for funnel clouds. These signal a tornado forming. Other times, someone may see a tornado. It has already formed. Now, the weather service puts out a tornado warning. If you hear a warning, a tornado may be near you. If this happens, you must TAKE SHELTER. If you’re outside, get inside your house. Go to the basement if you have one. If there isn’t a basement, go to a closet, a bathroom, or a hallway on the lowest level of your house. Stay away from windows. Tornadoes can be scary and dangerous. But you can be safe during a tornado if you follow these steps.
