     The following safe places are the preferred places to go in the event of a Tornado Warning, for the building specified. In many instances, time is very limited, or storm-safe areas are non-existent or inaccessible in your area, and getting to the preferred safe place is not an option. If this is the case, get to the lowest area of the building as possible, as far away from windows and exterior walls as possible, get as low as possible, and cover yourself with a mattress or blanket.
