Store your document safely in the (interior) shelter, along with a recent copy of one of your utility bills.
If the sky looks a greenish or orangey color, get everything together and head to a place of shelter at ONCE.
Know in advance how to turn off the water and gas to your house and keep the needed tools (wrench, etc.) in your emergency supply kit.


The greenish color often means hail, and the orangey color is a sign of dust being kicked up by strong winds in the storm. Be familiar with what their signals mean, and know where to seek shelter and what to do when they sound.
Proper shelter will increase your chances of survival, and lessens the risk of serious injury.


If severe weather is occurring locally, the NWS office assigned to your area will issue warnings for these storms.
