Speak Up: What’s your tornado safety plan?


Delaware was one of many states that saw devastating storms recently. One death was reported after a tornado near Greenwood, and there was significant damage to buildings, including some that are “destroyed or gone.” As of March 30, the U.S. had experienced 264 confirmed tornadoes this year, with 100 confirmed tornadoes in January, an unusually high number. Do you know the difference between a tornado watch and tornado warning? What is your family’s safety drill in case of a tornado or other severe weather? You can find more information at cdc.gov/nceh/features/tornadosafety.

  • We live in the country outside Milford and Greenwood. We are in a development, a two-story home. Two bathrooms downstairs. two big dogs. My husband and one dog in the no-window washer room. Me and the other dog in a no-window powder room. And we both hunker down, holding our dogs. We pray. — Denise Sloboda Deskiewicz
