16. Being in a ditch definitely would, and I think finding a low enough spot would too.

Tornadoes like flat areas. Even the small difference in hills between here and the much flatter area just 10 miles North of me makes a big difference in terms of weather patterns. They get tornadoes or tornado warnings at least once a year, and we hardly ever have an actual funnel cloud near us. There's virtually no 100% protection and this definitely isn't the absolute best option, but it is definitely better than waiting in a high risk place like a car or a mobile home.
