Subject: Severe Weather Alert

The National Weather Service is reporting severe thunderstorms, including tornado activity, approaching our area. Watch local media closely and take proper precautions should a tornado threaten campus:

  • Do not leave the building; it’s best to seek shelter indoors.
  • Warn others of the need to seek shelter.
  • Go to locate an interior space that doesn’t have windows; ideally, the space should have two exits.
  • Close the doors and stay inside until the tornado has passed.
  • After the tornado has passed, exit damaged buildings and proceed to another safe location. Report your condition and location as soon as possible.
