It is important that all residents know what to do and where to seek shelter in the event of severe weather. If the National Weather Service issues a SEVERE WEATHER WARNING, it will be necessary to evacuate all campus buildings to their designated shelter areas. Click HERE to find the location of your shelter areas.

Campus Security will issue severe weather warnings based on information received from the National Weather Service. It is important people follow all instructions via the radio or authorities during a severe weather warning and they be patient waiting for the warning to expire.
