Common Tornado Myth Involves Glass

Post Time:May 22,2013Classify:Industry NewsView:66

The tornados that struck Moore, Okla., earlier this week brought to the forefront a myth that involves glass.

This is not true, she explains. Just as in the event of a hurricane, open windows increase internal pressure.
