Are you prepared for a tornado or severe storm?



Dear Friend,

Are you prepared for a tornado or severe storm?  Last week's storms across the South remind us just how devastating severe weather can be.  In a typical year, more than 1,000 tornadoes, 5,000 floods and two land-falling hurricanes lead to 500 deaths and $14B in damage in the United States. 

Is your family prepared to deal with a tornado, severe storm or other unexpected disaster?  How can you prepare in advance? What is the best way to protect your family during a storm? Do you have an evacuation plan? 

APHA's Get Ready campaign can help you learn simple steps to help protect you and those you love. 

Don't let the next emergency catch you unprepared.  Visit APHA's Get Ready website for additional information.
