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.
