Illinois Emergency Management Makes Tornado Video
Illinois officials are encouraging school administrators and teachers across the state to talk to students about tornado safety when they return to classes this fall. To help get the message across, the state Emergency Management Agency has just released a video on tornado preparedness and is asking school administrators and others to watch it. The agency says the video outlines steps such as identifying shelter space within school buildings and plans they can make to move students to shelter if there is a threat of a tornado. Included in the video is security camera footage from a Joplin, Mo., school on the day last year when a tornado struck the community, killing more than 160 people.
