- Be prepared. Keep flashlights, batteries, water and other similar supplies in your home. A battery-operated radio is also good to monitor storms.
- Keep an eye on what’s happening. Watch the weather radar (Here is the Weather Channel’s Fredericksburg radar).
- Take shelter. Being in a car is one of the most dangerous places to be during a tornado warning (that’s when a tornado has actually been spotted, vs. a watch, when conditions are prime for a tornado). If you’re driving into the storm, head toward a shelter to wait out the storm."

Is the basic premise of global warming even logical?
What on Earth has previously addressed the soundness of global warming's underlying formula. Greenhouse gases and the greenhouse effect occur naturally in our environment. Earth would be too cold for our survival without them, and their existence has been proven by "centuries of science, laws of physics and direct observation." A simple experiment can demonstrate CO2's heat-trapping properties, as you'll see at the 48-second mark of this Bill Nye video. Or you can see the principle proven in Mythbusters' "Young Scientists Special."
