Get in the tub if you have nowhere to go. Bathtub, ditch, etc is safeer than nothing in the case of a tornado.

DO you have any neighbors around you that have a storm shelter/basement? any stores/restuarants anything like that? I would try those alternatives first.. 

In a house with no basement, a dorm, or an apartment: Avoid windows. Go to the lowest floor, small center room (like a bathroom or closet), under a stairwell, or in an interior hallway with no windows. Crouch as low as possible to the floor, facing down; and cover your head with your hands. A bath tub may offer a shell of partial protection. Even in an interior room, you should cover yourself with some sort of thick padding (mattress, blankets, etc.), to protect against falling debris in case the roof and ceiling fail. A helmet can offer some protection against head injury.
