Tornado Watch posted for Mid-Hudson

POMONA – The National Weather Service has issued a Tornado Watch for the Mid-Hudson region. It is in effect until 6 p.m. today.

A tornado is a violent storm with whirling winds of up to 300 miles per hour. A tornado spins like a top and may sound like the roaring of an airplane or train.

If you are a home when a tornado strikes, the National Weather Service advises that you go to a corner of your basement and take cover under something sturdy. If you have no basement, take cover in a small room such as a closet or bathroom, or under sturdy furniture on the lowest floor in the center of the house. Stay away from windows.

Do not remain in a trailer or mobile home if a tornado is approaching; take cover elsewhere in a nearby shelter or lie flat in the nearby ditch, ravine, or depression.
