Severe weather can hit at any time and it's important to be prepared, especially if you're an elderly person.
The National Weather Service said Sunday afternoon's tornado in Greensboro was a “high-end EF-2," and had max wind speeds of 135 mph and had a path width of at least 300 yards.
Here are several ways to best prepare:
- Make an emergency kit
- Complete with medication, food and water, flashlight, hand-crank radio, cell phone charger
- Make a list of items to bring in before the storm
- Inspect your yard
