Scammers are always thinking up ways to put a new spin on their criminal tricks. This time, they’re sending spam texts to you — from your own phone number. They’ve changed (spoofed) the caller ID to look like they’re messaging you from your number, but the shock of getting a text from yourself is bound to get your attention — which is what they’re after. If you get a text from your own number, it’s a scam. More: https://bit.ly/3v7JimW

Your "safe place" location may be different depending on the weather. You should always avoid driving & keep in mind:

If you are impacted by tornado damage, there are a few important things to remember. Listen to local officials, stay up-to-date on the forecast, contact loved ones (to let them know your status), and be mindful of debris (such as glass and nails) and downed power lines. Have a working radio with batteries available, and use flashlights instead of candles to avoid starting fires.

Some people are especially vulnerable to weather hazards.
When a Tornado Warning is issued, the standard safety action is to immediately take shelter in a safe place. However, people with a lower-level of mobility, such as the elderly or disabled, may need to take action beforehand, such as when a Tornado Watch is issued.
Help them and others in your community prepare by helping them identify a safe space, practicing (and timing) tornado drills with them, and showing them how to receive Tornado Watches and Warnings.

⚡Do you know the 30/30 rule?⚡
After you see lightning, start counting to 30. If you hear thunder before you reach 30, go indoors. Pause activities for at least 30 minutes after the last clap of thunder.
