AS Jeff said most tornados move to the north east I think it's 85% or something close to that. So if you are south or west of the storm you are in the safer location.

As Jeff said do not get under an underpass because the pressure and wind will actually be higher there.

If you can get in a building, you want to get to the center of the building in a room with no windows. If posable in the basement.

The safest place on the open road is in a culvert under the road, or in a steep narrow ditch if the water is not to deep. Believe it or not just lying flat, face down on the ground you have less chance of being hit by flying objects, or being picked up from wind (hug the dirt as they say in the military).
