为龙卷风做好准备

为龙卷风做好准备

在龙卷风中幸存下来的关键的第一步是倾听龙卷风的监视和警告. A tornado watch means that conditions are favorable for a tornado. A tornado warning means there is immediate danger of a tornado.

While local radio and television stations alert us to tornadoes, the best way to hear tornado warnings in your home is with a weather radio. 这个装置可以接收国家气象局的24小时广播,并发出响亮的龙卷风警报.

按照以下步骤为龙卷风做好准备

  • Identify a safe place in your home and make sure all family members, 尤其是儿童, 知道去那里发布龙卷风警报. Hold tornado drills so everyone remembers what to do.
  • 如果你住在房子里:家里最安全的地方是最低的一层——地下室. 如果你没有房间,选择一个远离窗户的小房间,比如壁橱、走廊或浴室. 待在房子中央附近. Put as many walls as possible between you and a tornado. 关闭所有门. 如果你最安全的房间是一楼的浴室, get in the tub and hold a mattress or cushions over your head for protection.
  • If you live in a mobile home: If you hear a tornado warning, 立即离开你的家,到附近的避难所或建筑物的地下室. 如果你没时间去避难所, 平躺在沟里, 涵洞或其他低的地方,并盖住你的头. 千万不要试图乘坐汽车逃离龙卷风.
  • 如果你被困在户外:赶紧躲到坚固建筑的地下室,或者趴在沟里, 涵洞或其他低的地方. 覆盖你的头. 龙卷风时不要呆在车里.
