outbreaks have begun occurring more often and with deadlier results. On April 25
through 28, 2011, 336 tornadoes spawned across eight states, causing 346 fatalities
and over $10 billion of damage. On May 22, 2011, a massive EF-5 tornado struck the

US history. As the threat of strong tornadoes increases, it is imperative to be
ready when the storms hits. Here I will show you how to prepare for the storm and
