Tornado Relief

Quick Facts

  • Tornadoes often strike with little to no warning, making evacuations difficult.
  • During tornadoes and in their aftermath, people who depend on medications for chronic conditions – primarily diabetes, asthma, and hypertension – are particularly at risk if their medications are unavailable.
  • People most vulnerable to tornadoes and other emergencies also tend to be those who are most vulnerable in general -- those with disabilities or language barriers may be unable to evacuate or receive early warning communications.
