Hi Patricia - while a tornado warning in our area would be more than a bit out-of-the-ordinary, in our area I have a basic earthquake disaster strategy.  It needs to be updated and more comprehensive.  Good question not only to think about but to actually implement.

I have an emergency supply kit and a business contingency and disaster recovery plan.  Make sure you have a backup plan for business.  Many businesses do not recover after a disaster.

Tornadoes are more common at lower elevations in eastern Colorado.  Pretty rare at higher elevations.  We are at 6,000 feet.  But we have some strong thunderstorms and hail storms.

I wrote some blog posts about having an emergency solar-powered AM/FM/weather radio and a long range two-way radio in case cell phone service goes out.

On Kauai it's hurricanes rather than tornadoes but YES we know what to do and have a plan. After Iniki most locals have their hurricance supplies and shelter plans.

I hope you are safe Patricia, and stay that way!   Yes, we will see tornadoes here in about a month, and I go to the basement with a transistor radio with my kitties.

Yes becasue we do have tornados. At home we have an inground shelter in the garage which can be installed for as little as $2200. There are designated safe areas around the city including malls, but the worst thing you can do is try to drive away from it. We had a F5 in May 2013 and the hisghways were gridlocked. This is not like a hurricane where you have ample warning to leave town. A tornado may give you 15 minutes.
