Spring is Time for Severe Weather
First, you should know the meanings of the terms that are used during severe weather. A WATCH is issued when weather conditions are favorable for the formation of severe weather. During a watch, keep alert to changing conditions and prepare to take protective actions. A WARNING is issued when severe weather has been reported by spotters or is indicated by radar. During a warning, take protective actions immediately.
If a TORNADO WARNING is issued for our area, take shelter in an interior room on the lowest floor of the building you are in. Abandon cars or mobile homes and seek shelter in a strong building or lie flat with your arms over your head in a ditch or low-lying area. Do not use your car to try to outrun a tornado.
Since our outdoor warning system is not designed to warn residents who are already indoors, Euless' Emergency Management office recommends that residents purchase a weather radio. These radios are inexpensive, widely available and can be programmed to alert only for severe weather or other emergencies in our area.
