      Water-repellent

      Hooded-jacket

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Tightly woven clothes
    B. Water-repellent
    D. Hooded-jacket
    Explanation
    During a blizzard, it is important to wear tightly woven clothes to provide a barrier against the cold wind and snow. Tightly woven fabrics help to block out the wind and keep the body warm. Additionally, wearing water-repellent clothing is crucial to prevent moisture from seeping in and making the body wet, which can lead to hypothermia. A hooded jacket is also essential to protect the head and neck from the cold and wind. Loose cotton clothes, on the other hand, are not suitable for a blizzard as they do not provide adequate insulation and can easily become wet.

Traveling during the day also allows for more daylight hours, which can be helpful if any issues or delays arise during the journey. Therefore, choosing to travel during the day is the best option during a winter storm.

    During a tornado, it is important to take certain precautions to ensure safety. Getting close to the ground helps to minimize the risk of being caught in the strong winds and flying debris. Chasing tornadoes is extremely dangerous and should never be attempted. Sitting under a heavy table or desk provides some protection from falling objects and collapsing structures. It is crucial to stay away from windows, doors, and outside walls to avoid being injured by shattered glass or collapsing walls.

      Go to the nearest shelter

    A. Go to the nearest shelter
    B. Try taking cover in a low-lying area
    Explanation
    During a tornado, it is important to prioritize safety and seek shelter immediately. Going to the nearest shelter is a recommended action as it provides a secure location to protect oneself from the tornado's destructive force. Additionally, taking cover in a low-lying area can be a viable option if there is no shelter nearby. This is because low-lying areas may offer more protection from flying debris and the strong winds associated with the tornado. Chasing a tornado, on the other hand, is extremely dangerous and should be avoided at all costs.
