SEVERE WEATHER ALERT
SEVERE WEATHER ALERTS
Be Prepared for Severe Weather
During severe weather season, be prepared to take precautionary measures in the instance of inclement conditions like tornadoes, straight-line winds or hail.
When there is a threat for severe weather, you can monitor local news channels or websites to stay informed about changing conditions:
|The Weather Channel|
Tornado Watches and Warnings are issued by the National Weather Service when the probability exists that a significant threat could develop over a wide area.
A TORNADO WATCH means that tornadoes are likely to develop.
A TORNADO WARNING means that a tornado actually has been sighted somewhere in the general area, you need to take immediate shelter. Campus shelter locations are listed below.
If the warning sirens are sounded or a tornado is sighted approaching campus:
Proceed immediately to the interior hallway on the lowest floor or basement, unless there are boilers or electrical switch-gear areas housed in the basement.
If time does not permit, get into the safest area of your classroom or office (the inside wall away from the doors and windows.)
Avoid windows, auditoriums, gymnasiums or other structures with free-span roofs and boiler or electrical switch-gear areas.
Take shelter underneath your desk or any heavy furniture available.
Assume a curled position protecting your head and eyes.
All persons should remain in the shelter areas until advised the warning has ended.
