What to do if you're injured in a sharknado
04 August, 2014
For those who have yet to view the devastating images released of the incident, a ‘sharknado’ is a terrifying but increasingly common natural disaster; a tornado which has become infested with sharks. As the spout rips through the city, the sharks shower upon the unsuspecting public, resulting in huge volumes of damage and injury.
Officials in other American cities have been quick to respond to the incident to calm the fears of the understandably concerned public.
We're ready to respond if there is a #Sharknado. If it were to happen, it would be in Oklahoma. Why? Because we're tough like that.

Meanwhile the official advice given by Chris Vaccaro, a spokesmen from the National Weather Service, has given advice to those concerned of a repeat attack: “As with any waterspout or tornado, the best advice is to be in an interior part of the lowest floor of a study building – and not outside, whether sharks are raining down or not.”
As there are no official government guidelines for action in a case of a Sharknado, it is worrying that officials have yet to respond, with President Barack Obama and Prime Minister David Cameron remaining silent in the face of this terror.
