‘I’m not scared’: Texas public safety official says no need to panic

In the wake of the deadly tornado in southern Texas, public safety officials in the state are warning citizens to be cautious and to be careful when using public transportation.

“I’m telling everyone to stay alert, to have your cell phone out, to stay at least two steps behind,” said Public Safety Director Brian Hartmann on Tuesday.

“There are no warning signs.

There are no signs to be worried about.

It’s not safe.

It just isn’t.”

Hartmann said the Texas Department of Public Safety is also advising Texans to take the following precautions: If you can, keep a close eye on your children or pets.
