  Health Tip: Preparing for a Tornado
Here's what you should stock up on

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- If you live in an area that's prone to tornadoes, experts say you should devise a plan and create an emergency kit before the first sounding of the warning sirens.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers these tips:

  • Obtain a small battery-operated radio, TV or device with internet connectivity, including extra batteries and chargers.
  • Create an emergency plan for the entire family, including any members with special needs.
  • Put together a small emergency supply kit packed with water, non-perishable food items and needed medication.
  • Create a document with important telephone numbers and other key information.
