Seeing tornadoes in December like the ones that tore through Central Illinois on December 1st is not the norm.
Taylorville Fire Chief Mike Crews says a good safety practice is to try to get as many walls as you can between yourself and the tornado.
Crews says it is never a bad idea to have an emergency kit on hand in case disaster strikes as power could be out for hours.
Crews recalls the growing amount of frustration from the first responders as they were having to fight through the crowds to get to the affected areas.
Crews appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
