Topic: What would you do if a tornado was spotted?
If I was in my house alone while a tornado came I would first try to stay calm. But if I can’t I would run to the basement while screaming. Go to the little room at the end of the hall. But if I forgot my lucky dog named spot. I would scream his name while running up to my room speedy quick. I would grab him run back down back to the room and sit in the darkness until I shake like crazy then panic. So that’s what I would do. — By Dana Cutti, Grade 4, Mrs. Lindsey
I would be scared if a tornado was spotted and I was home alone. I would get the candle box from the closet. I would get something to take downstairs to eat. I would get the flashlights from the garage. I would head downstairs to the rec room and turn on my weather radio until the tornado is here. Then, I would go under the steps because that is where my tornado spot is. It is safe there because it doesn’t have any windows. Last after the tornado has come I would get out and see all the damage. — By Jacob Meakin, Grade 4, Alloway Creek, Mrs. Gross

I would run into the basement and call my parents. If they were to tell me to go to another place in the house, I would move. I would stay away from the windows and take cover. That’s what I would do if a tornado was spotted near my house. — By Ricardo Taylor
As soon as I saw the tornado coming at my house, I ran for a flashlight. Then I ran for the basement. I heard the wind whipping and snapping the trees. Suddenly, I did not hear anything. Was it over? I walked out of the basement and saw trees and leaves lying everywhere. I could see the trail the tornado made. People were standing outside in shock of the damage. For the next couple of weeks people cleaned up the disaster. — By Jacob WernerRead More
