If you live in tornado country, chances are you’re on higher alert after Monday’s historic tornado devastation in Moore, Oklahoma.
Here’s a tip that comes straight from that tragic event: When a tornado is imminent, protect your head with a helmet. A football team in Moore was saved from the leading cause of tornado fatality (head injury) by the helmets worn during games and practice.
Worth remembering: Your riding helmet could serve the same purpose. Keep it at hand during tornado season, put it on as soon as you see or hear that a tornado is approaching, and teach other family members to do the same.
It could make all the difference during those terrifying moments of flying debris, uprooted trees, and collapsing buildings.
