Over the past three years, northwest Ohio has seen enough severe spring weather to warrant special preparation at area schools. Chief Meteorologist Robert Shiels talked to local teachers and principals to find out how in some ways, schools can be safer than homes when severe weather strikes.
It has been nearly three years since a deadly tornado hit northwest Ohio. The powerful twister back in 2010 destroyed Lake High School along with a dozen Millbury homes and killed seven people. Lake Township and Millbury were the hardest hit.
Michele Pelz, principal at Toledo's Jones Elementary School, says that storm, the worst to hit northwest Ohio in 37 years, has had a big impact on her students.
"I think our older students are more aware of the severity of what a tornado can do because of what happened in Lake Township. They saw it on the news; several volunteered," said Pelz.
2012 Wind Storm
Last year, on July 5, 2012 a strong thunderstorm brought straight line winds that gusted up to 89 miles per hour. That storm downed hundreds of tree limbs, damaged homes and killed a Springfield Township man.
After that storm, Springfield Local Schools partnered with area fire, police, sheriff, Red Cross and other agencies to create a safety program which provides shelter to the public during storms.
