SPRINGFIELD, Mo.— With possibilities of severe weather over the next few days, KOLR10 wants to ensure you and your family are safe.  

When a tornado watch is issued it doesn’t mean that a tornado is on the ground. It means that due to the atmosphere there is a chance that one could develop.

When a tornado warning is issued that means that a tornado is on the ground and is a threat. You should take cover immediately.

We recommend that you have several ways of getting the information you need in a timely manner, just in case the power goes out or one option is no longer available.

Where to go when there is a tornado warning

  • Evacuate mobile homes and head to shelter in a sturdy shelter near by
  • Go to the lowest floor in an interior room with no exterior walls if possible
  • Make sure the room doesn’t have windows
  • Protect your head with blankets or pillows in case debris makes its way into the structure
  • Remain aware of the weather by watching KOLR10 news, the KOLR10 weather app, or at https://www.ozarksfirst.com/
