Focus On Tornado Safety Prompted By Fatalities

In response to tornado fatalities in recent years, government agencies are calling on nursing homes for Tornado preparation and provision of shelter. A nursing home that lost the lives of 19 patients due to a tornado was considered the most dangerous. Investigations reveal there were areas that would have been a stronger shelter than others.

Increasing focus will be on nursing homes to identify and publicize safe areas for shelter in facilities where tornados are a more imminent danger.
