Tornadoes: Outdoor Items - Securing

Material provided by Federal Alliance for Safe Homes http://www.flash.org/

If you have advance warning of approaching storms and have time to safely secure outdoor items, bring outdoor items inside. If you have furniture and other outdoor equipment on your patio or deck, bring them inside when strong weather threatens. 

Don't forget trash cans, grills, toys and potted plants. Keep them from becoming flying objects that can cause additional injury or damage during storms with high winds.
