I'm not stupid. I take my pets and I get out of there. Everything else is replaceable
I feel sorry for Americans when they have these tornados or hurricanes<br />
we don't have many down under
Where I live, it's always tornadoes. And the only thing you can do here is hope for the best. Especially when they're small - but deadly - they hop around. They'll either hit your house and leave your shed standing or hit your shed and leave the house standing. Wherever they happen to touch ground between the hoppings. So unless you have a storm shelter - most here don't - all you can do is wait them out. And we're far enough inland that if a hurricane hits and comes to us, it's nothing but rain and/or tornadoes.
So far I've been lucky with them.
You're supposed to stay home during a tornado...so don't evacuate unless it's to a superior shelter. Hurricanes are the opposite.. evacuate if you can or or take shelter at your best (safest) option if you can't
I would go, the weather people know more about those things then we do.
Well if it was a Tornado, I would stay because there isn't going to be anytime before it hits. A Hurricane, I would leave.
I'd go if at all possible. Also, I would not want to put someone in jeopardy trying to save my ignorant butt if I'd stayed and hadn't heeded the warning
Go of course. Grab the kids and the cat and we are out of here. But live in the UK so not much chance of that.
Well glad you are OK. Not much warning with quakes I guess.
go...what's the point of staying?
Hurricane, yes. Tornado, where would I go, and I doubt I'd have the time even if I did go.
We don't have hurricanes where I live, but lots of tornadoes. In the event of a warning. I head for the storm shelter in my ba<x>sement.
I would grab my emergency backpack, the dogs and cat and get the heck out. There is no way I would stay and try and ride out something like that even with a ba<x>sement. If they say evacuate I evacuate.
I dont believe that we have ever evacuated for a hurricane and I've been here since 1956. We haven't had a strong one here since 1983 Even that wasnt very destructive and I live right on the coast. I'm very skeptical of the TV meteorologists - they like to work up a frenzy for ratings. Especially now that it's only me, I would wait until the last possible minute to leave.
Never had one here. But I'm staying! How much fun would that be to get blown to Oz for a vacation!
If it is a hurricane ..evacuate. For a tornado, it depends on the structure your in. If your in a home, they tell you to go to a ba<x>sement, or the center of your home away from windows. <br />
If your in a trailer, usually trailers are not substantial enough, and they may reccommend evacuating. <br />
I live in a home, but I have a weather alert radio..and so i have an early warning device in place. If you live in a trailor, i recommend a weather radio, or something to allow you time to flee and get to safety from a tornado.
I'm leaving as fast as I can. Not worth the stay.
