Now that you all know about climate and natural disasters, you may want to know how to protect yourself against them. Some examples are:
- TORNADOES: Go down to the lowest point you can and stay away from windows. Don't go outside.
- HURRICANES: As soon as a watch or warning is put into effect, leave low lying areas. Secure any loose outside objects and ensure that you have enough water and food for a few days. Board up windows, and place sand bags by windows and doors. Stay away from windows in a secure room. Don't use phone or candle, and don't go out even if it looks calm.
- MUD SLIDES: Try to get inside a sturdy building. Barricade doors and go under a table. Brace yourself and dot move until the landslide has stopped for ten minutes.
- EARTHQUAKE: once you feel the ground shake, drop to the ground underneath a table and huddle. Do not leave until you are sure it has stopped.
