Tornadoes in New Jersey?
Being prepared for a tornado is something we, in North Morris County, have rarely had to think about. Although tornadoes are rare in NJ, as of August this year there have been 8 recorded tornadoes in the state. A tornado can be a stressful and scary situation. Knowing what to do, as in any other weather emergency, is important and can help protect you and your family.

Some tornadoes strike rapidly, without time for a tornado warning, and sometimes without a thunderstorm in the vicinity. When you are watching for rapidly emerging tornadoes, it is important to know that you cannot depend on seeing a funnel: clouds or rain may block your view.
These weather signs may mean that a tornado is approaching:
A dark or green-colored sky
A large, dark, low-lying cloud
A loud roar that sounds like a freight train
If you notice any of these weather conditions, take cover immediately, and keep tuned to local radio and TV stations or to a NOAA weather radioExternal.
