You should open the windows in your house during a tornado or hurricane?
Not only is this wrong — it’s dangerous.
Opening a window brings in high-pressure air, which then must escape.
That’s usually out other windows or doors, or through the ceiling or roof.
Cracking the windows could even cause a house to explode. A better defense is covering openings with reinforced plywood, so air flows over (not into) the house.

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
