Understanding the difference between a TORNADO WARNING and TORNADO WATCH
Tornadoes can happen any time of the year. Timing of the system can change but nighttime tornadoes are always more dangerous and require additional planning. The difference between a tornado watch and a tornado warning means the difference between taking action or taking precautions.
Know your severe weather terminology.
During a TORNADO WATCH you want to be prepared because a tornado is possible. Which means that conditions are favorable for a tornado to occur.
1. Check for forecast updates.
2. Monitor sky conditions.
3. Know where to take shelter.
During a TORNADO WARNING take action because a tornado is imminent! A warning means that a tornado has been seen or picked up by radar. A warning requires you to take shelter and brace for a potential tornado.
1. Take shelter immediately.
2. Seek further information.
3. Check for forecast updates.
