1. That's a watch, not a warning.

2. Why can't they tell people to take shoes to their safe space?

In the event that they are actually hit by a tornado, there is no way to safely get away without shoes.

The ground and floor around them will be covered with broken glass, nails, sharp pieces of twisted metal, leaking fluids of every description, huge wood splinters, etc.

Please, people…take sturdy shoes to your safe place!

4. Take them? I dress for combat, and wear those shoes/boots at the first storm warning.

just in case those tornado sirens do wail. I have no basement in the townhouse sooo...take the cushion off the chaise and haul it into the ground floor half-bath, close the blinds and curtains, and the door after adding purse, doggies on leashes, flashlight, and cell phone. I'd never fit all that in the coat closet. I turn up the TV and leave it on - hunker way down if the lights go out.

5. I grew up in Missouri, we had several tornado watches/warnings every summer season

We were always told to get into the bathtub (no water in tub) because it was the safest place to be in a tornado.

Or farm folks actually are safer going down into the root cellar which is often dug into the ground away from the house. (They got that right in The Wizard of Oz!)

6. We always went in our basement under a large work table with a transistor radio.

I have fond memories of being huddled down there while the sirens went off. Family time!!
