November Tornadoes

A TORNADO TOUCHDOWN NEAR DAYTON OHIO

HELLO EVERYONE. I’M RICK JACKSON. THANKS FOR JOINING US.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CONFIRMED THAT A SMALL TORNADO SWEPT THOUGH THE CITY OF CELINA ON SUNDAY NIGHT.
THE NWS ESTIMATES IT WAS AN E-F-1 TORNADO, WHICH MEANS WINDS REACHED BETWEEN 86 AND 110 MILES PER HOUR. IT’S LOW ON THE ENHANCED FUJITA SCALE THAT MEASURES TORNADOS, BUT THE DAMAGE TO THE SMALL TOWN WAS BIG. A ROOF WAS BLOWN OFF A RESTARARUNT AND SCHOOL WAS CANCELLED FOR AT LEAST THE FOLLOWING DAY.

TORNADO SEASON IN OHIO IS FROM APRIL TO JULY, BUT IF THE WEATHER IS RIGHT THEY CAN STRIKE WHENEVER.

THE OHIO COMMITTEE FOR SEVERE WEATHER ADVISES REMEMBERING TO “DUCK” IN THE CASE OF A TORNADO MEANING:

D - GET DOWN TO THE LOWEST LEVEL

U - GET UNDER SOMETHING

C - COVER YOUR HEAD

K - KEEP IN SHELTER UNTIL THE STORM HAS PASSED
