Kansas Prof Takes New View On Tornadoes LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — There is a popular notion in the tornado-prone Midwest that the safest place in the home to seek shelter from a tornado is in the southwest corner. A University of Kansas professor says it's a dangerous notion. Dr. J. R. Eagleman, head of the meteorology department, said the southwest corner may be a death trap. Richard Garrett, chief meteorologist of the Weather Bureau in Topeka, said Friday that the bureau stopped advising people to seek shelter in the southwest corner In 1966. Dr. Eagleman has been studying tornado damage throughout the Midwest since 1966, under a grant from the U.S. Public Health Service. "Most tornadoes really do come from the southwest," Ea- gieman said in a statement issued by the university. "In the past, weathermen have advised people to take shelter there, thinking that the worst of the damage would pass over quickly, leaving them safe. "In actuality, when people, take shelter in the southwest corner of a house on the first floor, not the basement, the brunt of the impact strikes the southwest, carrying with it heavy debris that may endanger those in that corner. Eagleman says that even in homes with basements, the north or northeast corner is safer. Garrett said the old advic6 was predicated on the assumption that as a tornado broke a house apart, the debris was more likely to be deposited on the northeast side of the house. He said the Weather Bureau's instructions now urge persons to seek shelter in a basement, preferably under a table or sturdy work bench. "If there is no basement," the instructions say, "take cover under heavy furniture in the center of the house."
