Today is National Safe Place Selfie Day.

National Safe Place Selfie Day

MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - Four years ago the Safe Place Selfie campaign was created by the National Weather Service on April 3.

The initiative serves to promote awareness in hopes of encouraging the public to design a plan, a safe place for when extreme weather blows in.

Our news crew took their #SafePlaceSelfie inside the NewsWest9 station.

Meteorologist Nathan Santo Domingo recommends using the bathroom as a storm safe place.

Especially in the case of a tornado because of the sturdy foundation provided by the insulated plumbing.

Get creative! Send us a picture of your safe place either through Facebook or Twitter

Don’t forget to use #SafePlaceSelfie in your post and tag NewsWest9 because you could be featured on the evening news.
