Key Points

  • Electric dangers resulting from tornadoes, like downed power lines and power surges are common, but there are ways to reduce risks.
  • Prepare for severe weather, like tornadoes, by using surge protectors and unplugging electronic devices when a storm is imminent.
  • Hiring a professional to relocate overhead power lines near the home underground is also a way to prevent unnecessary electrical damage.
