From ALERT DC:
The National Weather Service reports they have issued a tornado WATCH for the DC area until 10pm.
What to do in a tornado:
– Go to a pre-designated shelter area such as a safe room, basement, storm cellar, or the lowest building level. If there is no basement, go to the center of an interior room on the lowest level (closet, interior hallway) away from corners, windows, doors, and outside walls. Put as many walls as possible between you and the outside. Get under a sturdy table and use your arms to protect your head and neck.
