Stay in the car with your seat belt on. Put your head down below the windows and cover yourself with a coat or blanket if possible.• If you notice an area that is lower than your car, such as a ditch, leave your car and lie down there, covering your head and neck with your arms.Fact: Flying debris is the greatest danger in a tornado!
