What do you do?

So a tornado is heading for you and you have no where to take cover., the News says you should lay flat in a ditch but all the ditches are full of water...what are your options? Drown or get sucked up by a twister?

**this was on the news last night, we had tornado warning, and the News said to lay in a ditch if you had no where else to go, but we were also getting TONS of rain and everything was flooded which they proceeded to warn of right after saying to lay in a ditch...**

  • The ditch is just if your in a vechile and not inside a house. If your inside and theres a tornado warning get as many walls between you if you dont have any other shelter. If your outside and the ditches are filled, well I'd run into a house!

  • Well let me see.. knowing that there was things flying around at all speeds ready to cut my head off.. we would all most likely get in the bath tub and cover our heads with a twin size mattress.. we live out in the middle of nowhere so it would be hard to run to the ditch or anything that was concreted in...

  • I guess I'd sit in the ditch if I would still be able to keep my head above water to breathe, otherwise, I would choose taking a chance with being sucked up versus immediately drowning myself in the ditch. . .

  • ha ha .. I'd probably run like a mad woman and up tripping and falling in a ditch full of water =O.. but I think I'd try to find a ditch that wasn't too full with that cement thingy where they regulate the water... and do my best to hold on and hope for the best...

    Now if I had my children with me I don't know what I'd do probably the same thing as above cause here we have ditches that have the cement thingy to regulate water flow and they are not that deep once your in them =)

    and my first thought when reading this was bathtub with mattress over head to!

  • Lay in the tub

  • Well if your stupid enough to be outside during a tornado warning then you deserve to get sucked up!!! Unless your driving of course, then I'd just step on it and out run the damn thing!!!
