Personal, Family and Staff Safety
Canada gets more tornadoes than any other country except the U.S., averaging about 60 per year.
- If a tornado is spotted in the distance, go to the nearest solid shelter;
- If outside, get as close to the ground as possible, protect your head and watch for flying debris;
- If driving and the tornado is close, get out of vehicle and take cover in a low-lying area, such as a ditch;
- Do not take shelter under an overpass or a bridge. Winds can accelerate under an overpass or a bridge and cause injury or death from flying debris.
