region with higher tornado frequencies or with a population other than university students. Similarly, a modification in warning orientation (i.e., not southwest to northeast), shape (i.e., asymmetric warnings), or the inclusion of a centerline might alter responses. The consideration of geographic position in concert with visual features is a notable strength of the research design that can inform future studies on visual weather communication. Future research will test for changes in interpretation

Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather radio for receiving warnings and developing a plan for where to seek shelter. These types of risk-reducing actions are also known as hazards adjustments ( Burton et al. 1978 ). In addition to conducting an inventory of hazard adjustments when assessing vulnerability, it is also important to understand what factors motivate people to adopt these adjustments. Mileti and Sorenson (1987) identified four steps in the process of adopting precautions

1. Introduction In recent years, there have been continued improvements in the meteorological understanding of tornadoes, radar technologies, and severe weather forecasting. As a result, it is possible to more accurately predict the location and movement of tornadoes. These predictive advances have been, to varying degrees, translated into operational changes in warning systems. In particular, the National Weather Service (NWS) has placed attention on the geographic precision of tornado
