The thing is this is pretty rare for our area. When we do get them they are usually way too weak to do anything.
From the National Weather Service.
There have been 11 confirmed tornadoes in Queen Anne’s County since the modern record began in 1950. Almost all of them were rated
As far as a room I don't think we really need that. If I lived in tornado ally I'd definitely be doing something like that. We go with the ol'
suggestion of get to a windowless interior room, such as a bathroom, closet or inner hallway. My house is made of brick and is only 1 story so it can
withstand slightly higher winds than a regular wooden constructed or 2 story house that has more surface area for wind to press against, so that's a
plus, although admittedly probably not enough if we ever had a direct hit.
I think this one caught the NWS off guard. We got the alerts at the same time it was happening. Some people that were hit the hardest said it was
already past them when they got the alerts.
