If during a stay in the Middle States or southeastern coast is broadcasted warning of a hurricane or tornado, should be implemented proper safety precautions.
Practical advice: If a problem occurs, contact the Bulgarian Embassy or Consulate General to the appropriate depending on the state in which you reside.
