During the spring and summer, certain regions of Kentucky become prone to tornadoes, which can wreak havoc on the homes and businesses that fall in their paths. To help Kentuckians be prepared, Spectrum News 1 Kentucky’s Chief Meteorologist Wes Callison offers viewers lifesaving tips to remain safe in the event of a tornado warning. These include:

  • Get inside a sturdy structure
  • Move to the lowest level of your home
  • Choose an interior room without windows
  • Cover and protect your head
