What Is the Difference between a Tornado Watch and a Tornado Warning?

Weather warnings have come a long way over the years, but we still have to rely on TV and the radio to warn us about tornadoes. There are two different ways to be alerted to a possible tornado: watches and warnings. These indicators mean different things, so it is important to know the difference if you want to be as prepared as possible for the coming storm. Here is your guide to watches and warnings:

What is a tornado watch?

If there is a tornado watch, conditions are right for a tornado to form in and around the area. You should make sure that all of your supplies are in order in your tornado shelter and that you are ready to take shelter.

What is a tornado warning?

If there is a tornado warning, a tornado has actually been sighted. This indicates imminent danger, so you should immediately take shelter.
Knowing the difference between a tornado watch and a tornado warning will help you act appropriately when either occurs. However, knowing the difference will only help you if you have an adequate place to take shelter. Visit us online to view our selection of tornado shelters today!
