Tornado Tips

May 2, 2011

This morning I had a conversation with Audrey K who runs the Room at the Inn program for our church. She told me about a mutual friend that came through the below mess pretty much unscathed. His name is Frank G. I just called him to confirm what Audrey K told me was true. Right before the tornado hit his below neighborhood he slightly opened front and rear windows and his patio door. He did not do so to his side windows. The E4 tornado hit his block and took out all of the other houses except his. The only damage he had was to the side windows he did not partially open. It kind of makes sense that if you can allow equalization of the negative pressure of the tornado and the normal pressure in your house by allowing the pressure to pass through the partially opened windows the destructive unequal pressure will be diffused. As you can probably tell I am in over my head with all of this physics yatta- yatta but I can tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt it worked for Frank G.

I am 72 but I still remember my Dad telling me as a kid that if I were ever caught out in the open during a tornado with no available shelter seek a ditch or depression for safety. Click below link for documentation:
