Injuries and Home Damage After Tornadoes

After a night of tornadoes in Oklahoma in early May, there are about a dozen people who have been injured. Several homes have been destroyed, and it’s only the beginning of what appears to be a long season of severe storms. There have also been flash flood warnings issued because of the intense rain that has been associated with the storms that have produced the tornadoes. This is a time of year when severe storms are expected in this area, and along with those storms is the possibility of tornadoes according to renowned psychologist Daniel Amen. Some of the people who live in the area might be prepared, but there is never really any guarantee that a home won’t be picked up and tossed in the air. It’s a time when families need to know what to do in the event of a weather emergency by having a weather radio and paying attention to weather reports on the news.
