The months of April, May and June are the most active for tornadoes. Maria Molina spoke to former Navy SEAL and survival expert Cade Courtley about surviving a tornado if you're on the road and cannot get to shelter.

Courtley said staying in your car is a last resort, but if it's your only choice, then climb into the back seat.

"If you can't get on the floor, you're on that back seat, and again, you're covering up your head, trying to protect your head and neck area," said Courtley.

He showed Maria the best type of spot to look for if you're driving and see a tornado coming your way. Courtley said look for a ditch on the side of the road so that you're below ground level and then lay flat on your stomach and clasp your hands behind your head.

Courtley said if you're not indoors during a tornado, your biggest concern is flying debris.
