If you spot a tornado that is far away, seek shelter and help alert others to the tornado by immediately reporting it to the newsroom of a local radio or TV station. Use common sense and exercise caution.
No one can know a tornado’s strength before it touches down, so keep up with local weather information, especially when thunderstorms are forecasted. Prepare your home and family for the possibility of a tornado. Moving to a shelter quickly is easier when everyone knows where to go, whether in your home or outdoors. Following these tips will give you the best chance for staying safe.
Falling and flying debris causes most injuries and deaths during a tornado. Although there is no completely safe place during a tornado, some locations are much safer than others.
If you’re in a vehicle, Do NOT try to outrun a tornado

The Mid Air Collision Avoidance (MACA) program out of Little Rock Air Force Base works to educate the general aviation community on the scope of military aviation operations in and around the state of Arkansas. With ninety-eight public airfields in Arkansas, plus several dozen in surrounding states it is important to provide as much information as possible to better share the airspace and enjoy the unsurpassed beauty that is the Natural State from the sky.
To this end the Team Little Rock Safety Office and our Airspace Manager make quarterly trips to visit local Fixed Base Operators and attend pilot meetings to talk about the nature of C-130 low level operations, as well as the capabilities and limitations of pilots during Visual Flight Rule operations. On this page you will see links to both our MACA pamphlet and MACA poster, which should also be available in your local FBO. Additionally please contact our flight safety office or airspace manager if you have any questions or want us to come out to your next pilot meeting. Fly safe!
