GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - The Science Museum of Minnesota conducted a survey of people throughout the state to learn more about how people react to severe weather warnings and get their thoughts on storms and tornadoes. 

Here are some interesting things they learned about Minnesotans:

90 percent of people heed warnings when the sirens to off - they head indoors, check their local station or website or both. Nine percent do the opposite - they head outside with their camera to check it out. One percent does nothing. 

While the vast majority of people are good at taking safety precautions, 60 percent of these same people would go storm chasing with scientist if given the chance. 10 percent have gone storm chasing on their own. 

The safest place to go storm chasing is from the comfort of your Omnitheater seat at the Science Museum. Come watch Tornado Alley and it will be like riding shotgun in the Tornado Intercept Vehicle.

Tornado Alley is at the Science Museum of Minnesota from now through June 20. For more information, call 651-221-9444.
