    Take cover -- move to an interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy building. Avoid windows. If you are in a mobile home, a vehicle or outdoors, move to the closest substantial shelter and protect yourself from flying debris. As a last resort, lie down in a low lying area and cover your head.

    A tornado warning had also been issued earlier for parts of Addison and Rutland Counties in Vermont until 4:15 p.m. Tuesday.  This included Cornwall, Whiting and Leicester.
