There's no such thing as a "tornado season" – Tornadoes are common in Virginia. In fact, 62 tornadoes struck the Commonwealth during the past three years, injuring more than 220 citizens and causing nearly $48 million in damage to homes, businesses and other property. Tornadoes can strike anywhere, at anytime and you need to know what to do. The best way to be ready is to practice a drill in your home, workplace and school.
