The National Weather Service has issued a tornado warning for southern Fairfield County until 7 p.m.
When a Tornado Warning is issued it means that strong rotation has been detected in the storm. A tornado may already be on the ground or expected to develop shortly. If you are in the path of this dangerous storm, move indoors and to the lowest level of the building. Stay away from windows. If driving, do not seek shelter under a Highway overpass.
The safest place to be during a tornado is in a basement. Get under a workbench or other piece of sturdy furniture. If no basement is available, seek shelter on the lowest floor of the building in an interior hallway or room such as a closet. Use blankets or pillows to cover your body and always stay away from windows.
