Tornado Season Blows In

The Tornado Project estimates about 1,000 tornadoes touch down in the United States each year. These dangerous storms kill some 80 Americans each year, and injure about 1,500 others. As severe weather occurs, the likelihood of tornadoes touching down increases. It is important for families to review tornado safety techniques before a tornado hits, emergency management officials advise. Knowing a little bit about tornadoes can save lives.

Tornadoes typically occur with little or no warning, usually taking entire communities by surprise. When a tornado hits, use the resources below to locate emergency relief organizations in your community and nationwide.
