Tornado In the Twin Cities - What You Going To Do?

Last week, KARE 11 television in the Twin Cities, and Minnesota Public Radio, teamed up to deliver a three part evening news series intended to help regional viewers become "storm ready" for the upcoming summer.  Central to those broadcasts was a scenario that had a tornado traveling southwest to northeast across the western metro region with the final point of destruction being the Twins Stadium in downtown Minneapolis. Focusing on the reality that it has been more than 50 years since a major storm has hit the Twin Cities (causalities in the hundreds), insights provided were designed to keep individuals safe whether at home, on the road, or at a major venue.  Click the links below to view the videos (7:15 each) and/or read the associated news pieces.  Also find below the link to the Minnesota Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management's (HSEM) "Tornado Safety Information Page".  

Comment: This series is worth your time to review as we head into late spring and early summer.  And for a geospatial "spin" on this theme, go here.
