Severe Weather

  • In case a tornado watch or warning is issued, students need to follow proper procedures.
  • A tornado watch means that conditions are right for a tornado. During a watch, security and the Housing Coordinator staff will monitor the weather reports, and students will be advised.
  • A tornado warning means that a tornado is imminent. When a warning is issued, you will be asked to move to secure location. For your own protection, it is mandatory to move to the secure locations during a tornado warning.
