While tornadoes may occur anytime of the year, they are most likely in April, May, and June. Over half of all tornados occur between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., or on hot and humid days. One of the most important things you can do to prevent being injured in a tornado is to be alert to the onset of severe weather and reach shelter in time. The safest place to be during a tornado is in a basement, or in a small interior room like a closet or bathroom, away from outside walls and windows.
