How to get over a fear of tornados/thunderstorms? my family makes fun of me for it.

I hate living this way I don't know what to do. Every time there is a thunderstorm I watch tv in the basement. I am always checking the the weather. sometimes I am too scared to leave my house. I absolutely hate long car rides. every since we had a tornado warning near my house I been so nervous. I am from Southern California so I have little experience with tornados/severe thunderstorms.

Thunder and lightning really can't do much to you unless you decide to stand on top of a building with a metal umbrella, so you don't need to worry about those. The next time a thunderstorm comes around, try just sitting near a window and watch. It will be kinda scary at first, but after a while you will see there is nothing to be afraid of. As for tornados, they are really kinda rare, so don't worry about them too much. But if you do hear sirens going off, you do need to be in the basement, but otherwise you are fine.
