‘Tornado alert in Jones county. Be prepared!’
The Turners lived on a farm on the plains of Kansas., U.S.A. Tornadoes are common there, especially in June.
Ellen Turner turned off the radio and looked out of the window. Across the wide flat fields, all looked calm. But in the distance, clouds were gathering. A dark funnel began to drop from it towards the ground.
She called the two children. They had to get into the tornado shelter underneath the house - now!
Jim was playing a computer game and didn’t want to stop.
“We’ve never been hit by a tornado. Stop panicking, mom! No way will it hit us!”
But then the power went off.
They quickly headed for the shelter. They should be safe there, but there was a problem.
Dad was out in the fields, checking on the cattle. Could he get back home in time?
