What to do in case of Severe Storms

Immediate Actions:

Severe Winds

The best protection in the event of severe winds is the use of the permanent campus buildings. It is safer to be inside permanent buildings than attempt to evacuate the campus. Time permitting, employees and students in temporary structures will be moved to permanent concrete structures.

In the event of a tornado warning:

  1. Incident Commander (IC) will attempt to issue warning of approaching tornado.
  2. Move everyone out of windowed areas.
  3. Close doors and remain in interior, windowless rooms, hallways, or basements. Await further instructions issued by the IC or other officials.
  4. Insofar as is practicable, Building Monitors will follow up on warnings to employees and students by making room-to-room inspections.
