Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- The number one thing you can do to protect yourself during severe weather is to be prepared.

Make sure you have your weather radio on or your local media station for alerts. If you live in an apartment you should go the center of the building on the lowest level.

If you are in a single family home you should go to a inside structure like a closet or bathroom.

To protect yourself from debris crawl in a bathtub and cover yourself with a mattress.

Mobile homes are the most dangerous to be in and you should seek shelter in a building designed for severe weather.

Leon Schlafmann- Fargo Cass Emergency Mgt.: "There are a number of different businesses or building in your neighborhoods that offer 24 hour service that might offer a little more protection."

It's also a good idea to sign up for code red alerts.
