Severe weather while traveling/camping?

I asked this question in my trip planning thread, but want to get it out to more viewers: What do you do about severe weather when you are out on the road/trail?

We are doing the TAT as part of a 3 month coast to coast ride this summer (see link in sig line) and are wondering how everyone deals with this. We did a trip across country last summer and drove across Kansas the day Joplin got hit by the big tornado. We were watching it tearing up OK and southern KS as we drove. We drove through that storm system all the way across the US and drove through hail and zero visibility rain, and that was miserable in a car!

I grew up in IN and am familiar with tornadoes, but always had some sort of shelter just in case. Out camping while on the TAT, we won't have that luxury. Write2ride grew up in WA, so she has never seen/been through a tornado and is really nervous about them. I am thinking about a small weather radio to get weather updates. Any more ideas?
