One of the biggest weather risks that Oklahomans face is the threat of tornadoes. Last week’s outbreak of tornadoes across the state serves as a reminder of how damaging and deadly these weather forces can be. According to newsok.com, an Oklahoma man attempted to beat the storm home when he was caught by a tornado that took him off his motorcycle and dragged him 15-20 feet across a lawn and pavement. Fortunately, he only suffered some cuts and bruises to his back. The man was aware of the storm, but did not realize there was a tornado until it him.
This incident serves as a reminder for all Oklahomans and others in areas that are hit by tornadoes that driving anywhere near these storms are not a good idea. Weather.com has provided safety tips if you are out on the road during a threat of a tornado.
McIntyre Law would like to encourage all Oklahomans to stay off the road during tornado conditions. If you become aware of a threat of a tornado while driving, please follow the above safety tips to get to safety.
