Generally speaking, you want to be as low to the ground as possible during severe tornado conditions. A basement is ideal, as particularly powerful tornadoes can tear buildings apart. If you don’t have access to an underground space, being near the center of the building is the next best plan, staying away from any windows, as flying debris is one of the greatest dangers during these storms. If your interior bathroom has a bathtub, that can also be a sturdy place to stay safe.

The best place to go in a tornado is away from the tornado into a safe place like a cellar or an under ground trench/basement.

Underground, in a basement or sewer via a manhole cover, under a freeway overpass, hospitals, jails, fire departments, fairgrounds, underwater, or in a cave.

When there is a tornado, the main priority is to get AWAY from where you are right now, especially if it's a major tornado. Try and stay in low grounds, like in a basement or a tunnel or something like that. If you are in a building with a tornado-safe room, or your house has one, then you should take shelter in there. Usually, these areas are like the bathroom or closet in your house, but in other places, like some hall or theatre, there would usually be a metal sign by the door which would say TORNADO ROOM. Try and find that room to get into. If there is a tornado coming, first pack all your things. But don't forget to bring everyone with you, even your pets! Stay safe!

Of course, the safest place to be when a tornado approaches is in a basement or storm shelter underground. But if you are not able to get to a shelter or basement, you need to find shelter that is available. If you have a cellar, storm shelter, safe room or basement available, go immediately to that area.

all the answers here were mostly correct but there is one that is an absolute NO and dangerous;not uncommon though. DO NOT GO INTO A FREEWAY UNDERPASS.Worst place possible .It INCREASES the wind speed of the tornado. Yes,ppl have survived there but not because it is safe. It was probably due to the tornado going in a different direction or not being close enough at the time. Go to the Weather Channel website. They have the best information you can get re tornadoes. Another way to be safe is to be WEATHER AWARE.i noticed a long time ago with these tornadoes is that the greatest danger is people being caught off guard. Be WEATHER AWARE. I go to the Storm Prediction Center and look at Convection reports. It's a darned reliable site to get weather conditions and what MIGHT be coming. Keep in mind that they can read the tea leaves so to speak but it's still not an exact science. However, it's as accurate as you will ever get.Better when they are wrong but they are not always going to be wrong if weather conditions hold. If you're a day ahead of what might be coming you're better off than finding out when the sirens are going. i watch people driving around in cars as a tornado is approaching and wonder why they are even out and about. Take it seriously. Have a PLAN. In fact put your plan into place while there is a watch and there's time. Once it's a warning-meaning torando on ground-you probably have seconds. In a mobile home-go to a shelter BEFORE it gets to a warning. In a car-better off not driving around but if you're caught,get out and seek shelter of some kind.

Yes if u are inland you should probably evacuate to a basement or a bath tub, but if you are getting hit by a category 3 or above and live near the sea or on the coast do not go in a basement or below ground because strong winds cause a storm surge which will lead to dangerous flooding and ur basement will be the first thing to fill up
