Tornado Watch vs WarningSpring weather brings storms and severe weather to our area. The City of El Dorado offers two storm shelters that are opened during Tornado Warnings for our area:

  • City Hall, located at 220 E. First 
  • El Dorado Senior Center (ADA Accessible), located at 210 E. Second.

Staying Safe in Thunderstorms

Severe thunderstorms are storms capable of producing hail an inch or larger or wind gusts over 58 mph.

Act Quickly When Severe Weather Strikes

Listen to local news or a NOAA Weather Radio to stay updated.

  • At Your House: Go to your secure location if you hear a severe thunderstorm warning. 
  • At Your Workplace or School: Stay away from windows if you are in a severe thunderstorm warning and damaging wind or large hail is approaching. 
  • Outside: Go inside a sturdy building immediately. Sheds and storage facilities are not safe. Taking shelter under a tree can be deadly. 
  • In a Vehicle: Being in a vehicle is safer than outside; however, drive to a shelter if time.
