The devastation and loss of lives caused by this week's tornado in Moore, Oklahoma has given people across the country cause to review their own plan of action for when severe weather strikes and one local official says that's exactly what everyone should do.
Christian County Emergency Management Director Randy Graham says many survived the violent tornado because they had a tornado plan and stuck with it.
Most people think of Oklahoma as part of “tornado alley,” but Graham reminds residents the strongest tornado of 2004 in the United States happened in Hopkins County. Graham says no area is immune to a twister like the one experienced in Moore earlier this week.
Residents are reminded that the most interior room of the lowest level of your home is always the safest place to be in the event of severe weather.
