Tornado coming? What to do before, during and after

As Hurricane Ian makes landfall on Florida's southwest coast, the risk of tornadoes is increasing.

The National Weather Service suggests putting an emergency plan in place.

Have supplies ready such as flashlights, batteries, food, water, clothes and shoes.

Have a fully-charged phone with push alerts set up, local TV reports, weather apps and a NOAA weather radio.

Check forecasts regularly to see if you're at risk for tornadoes.

Have a family plan ready that includes where to meet and how to keep in touch.

When a warning is issued, move to a small room away from windows, with supplies and medications stocked.

After a tornado has passed, contact your family and loved ones to let them know you're OK.

Contact local authorities if you see power lines down. Stay out of damaged buildings. Be aware of insurance scammers.
