I've been in your situation more than I'd like to admit so I can tell you some of what you'll need to do. First, is your home structure strong? If not then you'll need to find shelter somewhere else that is structure strong. However, if your home is strong stay there, listen and watch the weather as close as you can. You'll know when to take cover. To take cover, you're to get into a center room without any windows so that if a tornado were to hit, the glass is likely to break and fly so its best to be away from windows. Now if you have a downstairs, its best to be on the lowest level of your home. The bathroom is the safest place to be however, I don't know how your country is so I can't give you advice there so based on the information I just gave you, you should be able to figure out what to do. I wish you the best!!!!

I would ask neighbours in the area or local police. I have never been in a tornado or hurricane either but I always see everyone evacuating the area they live in....

Hi, Where do you live? It is such a terrifying news that a tornado is going to attack your place. At my place there was strong wind which blew away canopies and damaged cars, and it had never happened before. I believe nowadays there are a lot of natural disasters happening around the world, and I am scared too. If your place is going to be attacked by tornado, I think you should build an underground room below your home so that you can hide there during the hurricane or tornado. I've seen people hide in there and they are safe because strong wind is not likely to lift up grounds as well. If you have relatives who are living far away from the tornado spot, you should go and stay with them for a while. I think this is much safer than staying at your home and wait for the tornado.
