Tornado Safety

As we enter into the spring season where tornadoes become a more serious threat, here are some safety precautions to know in the event of a tornado:

  • Stay weather aware: be sure to know in advance when severe weather will arrive.
  • Make sure your mobile devices are charged should a storm knock out electricity. 
  • Review your personal emergency plan and check your supplies and your surroundings in the event your area is affected.
  • Be prepared to go to a campus storm shelter or the best available refuge area if you are not at home or in a safe position.

Tornado Warning: Get to a safe place now; a tornado has been spotted or indicated on a radar. 

Tornado Watch: Be ready to move to a safe place; conditions are favorable for tornados to occur.
