In another STATE I often wondered about that as I would be riding my bicycle in Missouri listening to the storm sirens going off and having no place to go. Some people have suggested lying flat on the ground in the middle of an open pasture. But... that isn't always a possibility. Perhaps also inside of a large culvert, provided there isn't excess water, and there is adequate ingress/egress. While at a construction site, I wondered about crawling under heavy construction equipment. It would take a lot of wind to move a 40 ton dozer.
Such a bathtub may help in deflecting debris that comes from the sides, but what goes up must come down; imagine if the tornado dropped something heavy into the tub as it left?

No no, I meant something falling into the tub, not on top of it. Something that would be small enough to fit in it but would also be a little heavier than you would want on top of you...like a car engine.
