This is a very dangerous and potentially life threatening fire weather situation. Very strong winds and very low relative humidities will create weather conditions favorable for extreme fire growth and spread. A regional outbreak of dangerous wind-driven wildfires is possible.

If you're under a warning, seek shelter right away. Get to a basement or small, interior room on the lowest level of the home/building. Remember mobile homes do not offer protection from tornadoes—if you're in one, get out immediately & head to a nearby, sturdy building.
