Safe&Sound: Tornado Season Safety for Your Virginia FamilyMon May 21, 2018
Virginia's tornado season runs March through May, but severe weather, including damaging winds and tornadoes, can occur anytime during spring and warmer weather months. Protect your home by checking your trees regularly and keep those, especially closest to home, healthy and trimmed. When severe weather is in the forecast, bring in loose items from your driveway, yard, patio and deck, including trash cans, toys, and planters. Also secure outdoor grills and furniture. Park your car in a garage or away from large trees.
