Unlike the aftershocks of earthquakes, which normally hit an earthquake-stricken area multiple times within a year or two, tornadoes in the same area are not a common phenomenon. The Red Cross last week, however, began sending volunteers back to Alabama in another season of tornadoes, not too long after last year’s response. The relief efforts are ongoing, and the organization continues its mission to always respond to disasters, no matter the scale or the frequency.
Surprisingly, California isn’t immune to tornadoes, as we’ve seen in hard rainfall and high winds among recent years. There’s always a reason to be prepared for any emergency, including wind-related disasters.
