It blows out there. Seriously. It's officially tornado season in the U.S. which means don't be a fool-- know what to look for and what to do.
Here's what to look for:
Dark skies, possibly tinted green
A long, rotating cloud, known as a funnel
Let's say those boxes are all checked. Now what?
Designate a shelter – Establish shelter zones at home and work. If your home has a safe room, you already have a designated emergency shelter, otherwise look for a secure place underground, like a basement or cellar. If these options aren't available, choose a small room without windows, such as a closet, on the lowest level of the structure.
Crack Wisedom: Put some damn booze in that safe room!
Create an emergency kit — Kits should include canned food, bottled water, essential medications, blankets, a radio, flashlights, batteries and spare clothes.

Charge all cell phones and have back-up batteries – Your electricity may go out and having a phone to call for emergency services or check up on loved ones will be key. A portable backup battery charger can be used to recharge your phone or other devices needed during the storm, such as a radio or flashlight.
Crack Wisedom: If you don't post your happenings on the socials, it didn't happen.
All wise-cracking aside. Be prepared. Thanks to ServiceMaster Restore for the safety (just the) tips.
