**Urgent Advice** tornado warning
My area has just fallen inder a tornado warning and it seems as though there are active tornados on their way in the next several hours. This is NOT a normal occurance in my area - I think the last tornado I can think if was about...25 years ago at least.
Soooo, myself and the farm owner where I work are in debate as to what to do with the horses that live outside. I want to bring them in and batten down the hatches, but my boss thinks they will be better off outside. The paddocks are all about 2 acres in size where the horses are right now and surrounded by very OLD trees that are a little on the rickity side. My concern is falling branches and debris.
So I'm hoping for advice from some of you more experienced with severe weather. I am freaking out about doing the right thing and keeping everybody safe.
