Tornado in an open field

Don’t let Tornadoes Take You by Surprise

(En español)

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma communities that were hit by tornadoes and experienced the loss of lives and properties last night.

This is a difficult reminder that even though we are in the midst of a global pandemic, the Texas spring storm season is here as well. Please take time now to register for emergency alerts here at tituscountyalerts.com.

Also, make sure you have a plan to take shelter that everyone in your household understands. This includes:

At Your House: Designate a safe room or an interior room away from windows. Don’t forget pets if time allows. A mobile home is not considered a safe structure. If you live in a mobile home, you need to pay attention to weather alerts and plan to go to a safe structure such as the home of a friend or relative well before the storm is expected. Please note: the Titus Regional Medical Center is not open to the public for sheltering due to COVID-10.

Outside: Seek shelter inside a sturdy building immediately if a tornado is approaching. Sheds, storage facilities, trailers and tents are not safe. If you have time, get to a safe building.

In a Vehicle: Being in a vehicle during a tornado is not safe. The best course of action is to drive to the closest shelter. If you are unable to make it to a safe shelter, either get down in your car and cover your head, or abandon your car and seek shelter in a low lying area such as a ditch or ravine.

Preparate! No dejes que un tornado lo tome por sorpresa


Nuestras plegarias, sentimientos y oraciones están con las comunidades de Texas, Louisiana y Oklahoma que anoche fueron golpeadas por tornados y experimentaron la pérdida de vidas y sus propiedades.

Este es un recordatorio difícil de que, aunque estamos en medio de una pandemia mundial, también está presente las temporadas de tormentas de primavera en Texas. Tóme tiempo para registrarse para recibir alertas de emergencia en: tituscountyalerts.com

Tambien, asegúrese de tener un plan de refugio que todos en su hogar entiendan. Esto incluye:

En su casa: designe una habitación segura o una habitación lejos de las ventanas. No olvides las mascotas solo sit e da tiempo. Una casa móvil no se considera una estructura segura. Si vive en una casa móvil, debe prestar atención a las alertas meteorológicas y planear ir a una estructura segura como la casa de un amigo o pariente mucho antes de que se espere la tormenta. Tenga en cuenta: el Centro Médico Regional Titus no está abierto al público para refugiarse debido a COVID-10.  

Afuera: Busque refugio dentro de un edificio resistente de inmediato si se acerca un tornado. Los cobertizos, las instalaciones de almacenamiento, las cocheras y las carpas no son seguras. Si tienes tiempo, ve a un edificio seguro.

En un vehículo: estar en un vehículo durante un tornado no es seguro. El mejor curso de acción es conducir hasta un refugio más cercano. Si no puede llegar a un refugio seguro, bájese en su automóvil y cubra su cabeza, o abandone su automóvil y busque refugio en un área baja como una zanja o barranco.
