Here's a refresher if you don't recall what a Tornado Warning is. Watches are common but Warnings are not. I've lived on the edge of Tornado alley for ~8 years and I've only seen 2 warnings that directly effected my home. IMO all tornado warnings should be treated very seriously... Here's the scenario. - Tornado Warning issued by NWS. - Doppler indicates it's heading directly for your home. - You have ~15 minutes before it arrives. - You know where the storm is and where it's headed. - You have good access to N-S roads to avoid the storm path. I think the old advice of seeking an interior room is somewhat dated... not long ago the warnings came later and people had limited ability know what the storm path was. Today most people look at a doppler image on their phone. Depending on the intensity sheltering in your home could be pointless if you don't have a purpose built storm shelter. The danger area for even very strong cells is typically only a couple miles wide... unless you're in a very urban area you should be able to dodge the storm in <10 minutes of driving. Last night was somewhat exciting.... I had seen a strong storm cell approaching my town earlier in the evening about ~2 hours away. I happened to pull the map up again and saw that not only had a Tornado Warning been issued but that the cell was headed directly for me. Less than a minute later the sirens in town went off... I grabbed a few things and was headed North out of town in less than a minute.... easily dodging the worst of the storm.
